Aloha William...it sounds like a chayote or mirliton to me. Do a google search for chayote and you can probably find photos of them. In my cookbook Tropical Taste, I have 4 pages of description and recipes using chayote

Dear friends at The Edible Hawaii Garden:
Aloha. I have a public garden plot near Wahiawa. Surrounding the plot on both sides is a prolific vine which produces a strange looking, tear-drop shaped gourd that is light green in color, weighs about 2 Lbs and looks like a the curled up fingers of a fist on the bottom side. The locals call is (spelled phonetically) sigh-yuu-tea.

What is this thing? Can you provide me the proper spelling and perhaps give me a web site with some recipes telling me how I can prepare this thing. I could not understand the Filipino papa-san in the plot next door as he tries to explain to me how to prepare this thing. Is it supposed to be edible? Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

John Williams

Mahalo, Richard!
We are having a lot of fun with our little garden and are already adding new beds and areas to expand it....after all...who wants to mow?

Sonia
Excellent piece. I love the idea of planting something to eat in a part of the yard that one mows. It's work either way. But, one can eat the fruit of his/her labor from the garden. And, you are leading by example. Aloha. Richard
