Hello everyone, we have relocated to Victoria and simply can’t buy chokoes in the shops for planting. At one fruit & veg shop they even looked up a book to see what chokos were!!! Can anyone help us get a few chokos for planting. Thanks everyone.January 15, 2010 at 4:08 am #450609
I’ve been trying to get chokos for years now Ken. 🙁 If you find out where you can get some please put the info on here.
Oh, and welcome to als. :wave:

If you’d like to pm me your address I’ve got one in the pantry waiting to seed that you can have. I was lucky enough to find a few at the fruit and veg shop about a month or so ago and this one hasn’t shot for planting yet. Bit hard to find them at this time of year, autumn seems to be the season for them.

Hi C, appreciate your offer of the “choko” we would love it. As we are new to the site should I give contact details here or is there another way? Cheers K & HJanuary 15, 2010 at 7:40 am #450612

Hi C, hope you got my private message re address & ph., have been unable to read private messages, have asked ALS for assistance in this. Cheers KJanuary 19, 2010 at 4:02 am #450614
Got your message and replied Ken, but forgot to take the choko with me into town this morning. Will post in the morning all being well.

Hi C, we’ll keep in touch re reimbursement of costs and receipt. Cheers KenJanuary 20, 2010 at 8:48 am #450616
The Choko has left the building. I don’t want any reimbursement Ken, it’s fun to pay things forward once in a while. All being well you should receive it by Friday or Monday. It’s a choko, it’s tough, it’s been surviving in my pantry for ages with no rot or anything to suggest that it wasn’t fresh picked. OK, it’s a weird super tough choko. I’m just worried about what Aussie Post can do to it. It’s in dirty bubble wrap sorry, I couldn’t find my big roll and the child found a piece floating out in the paddock so I used that. I have no idea where that piece of plastic came from, I’ll blame the neighbours but at least I’ve put it to a more practical use than decorating the gum trees. Oh, you may need a sharp knife or scissors to open the parcel, I’m overly fond of packing tape.

Thanks C, will nuture “the choko” and keep you posted. Cheers KenJanuary 26, 2010 at 7:54 am #450618
Hi C, the choko has landed, in good condition in pride of place and awaiting a sprout. Thanks again Ken & HildaJanuary 26, 2010 at 11:47 pm #450619
You are more than welcome.

After all this choko talk….I think I am going to jump in as well.
My local fruit and veg usually have chokos for sale, so I will give it ago and see if I can get one to sprout.
I have a low fence in the front yard that I thought I could cover with ‘something’ and if I could grow a food plant even better.
Now I just hope that the people around me won’t laugh at it and also that they like chokos!! :tup:February 3, 2010 at 9:17 pm #450621
Thanks for your reply, keep us posted, we have no worry about neighbours laughing as very few people (mostly imports) know what a Choko is. Cheers Ken & HildaFebruary 3, 2010 at 10:53 pm #450622
I went to buy a choko and they are out of season :uhoh:
So I will have to wait a while before I can plant one……..But in the mean time I will just prepare the soil so it will go off like a rocket!!!
