choko… one word… big plant

Chokos have a reputation.  Big, invasive, did I mention big and usually the vegetable you see for free on the side of the road.

Can you see that ‘dead’ stuff up there in the tree.  Click on the image if you can’t.  Yes that is the remains of our choko that. got. BIG.  Up up it went into the oak tree.  5m 10m 15m  maybe even more.  It fruited and then the giant fruit began to fall.  Off with its branches I declared.  Before it knocks out an innocent chicken or child.

Yes Chokos can get big.  But when you grow them in a pot, it is rather easy to bring them back under control…..
