Brazilian veggies

Called "Chuchu" pronounced shoo-shoo. Grows off a vine.

Anyone tried it? Don't let the shape throw you off.

I've never tried one that I know of. Worked in Brazil for 3 years so might of had one as part of a salad. I'm really just a meat and potatoes kind of guy. Need a big freezer for cruising.
