Growing local

I have about 20 medium to large choko needing to go to a good home if someone makes chutney etc. I just can't keep up with eating them and they sometimes hide until too big for general eating.

Some are big enough to plant.

PM me or give me a ring 041444 5581 for collection.

Mine has only recently started flowering and isn't living up to the reputation for rampancy that they have.  Am I doing anything wrong or did I just perhaps plant late?  (Can't remember exactly when I planted sorry, maybe Feb).

It's doing quite well then. Chokoes go into a kind of dormancy over the cold weather anyway so flowering now might give you some fruit. Ones about fit-in-your-palm size are sweeter than the bigguns which are more bland. Come next summer your Choko will be as rampant as you'd want, they are slowish starters but can live for a few years.

Give it time Vanessa, it should come good. Mine is now about 3 or 4 yrs old and gets cut right back to a stump between cropping periods.

They like plenty of water and I found this plant, with it's shaded roots, did much better than the plant with root area more exposed to summer heat. That one died.
