I say choko, you say chouchou

I'm going hunting. For chokos. I have a recipe in which the choko is the vital ingredient (given that 'choko' is in the name of the recipe), but I have no idea where I might find one in London.

Now, any non-Australians reading this will probably have no idea what I'm on about. But, with a little help from everyone's friend, wiki, I have been able to translate 'choko' into something the locals in London will (hopefully) understand - chouchou. Or chayote. Sometimes also called vegetable pear.

My problem is, I don't remember the last time I saw a choko, but I'm pretty sure that I've never seen one in London.

So...is there anyone out there who can help me find some (actually, 12) chokos in London?
