The New Milpa Crop: Chuchos

I have mentioned many times of the different crops we get from the milpa fields, but I am sure I have never mention the chuchos as being one of the crops. Well, believe it or not, just like in the film Invasion of the Body Snatchers, either the original 1956 or 1978 remake [take your pick], chuchos are grown on bean-like pods. 😉

    Great picture! Like Gini, I think it’s really cute! When are they ready for picking? I like the “colocho” one in the middle!
