Cyclanthera pedata , known as caigua , is a herbaceous vine grown for its edible fruit , which is predominantly used as a vegetable. It is known from cultivation only, and its use goes back many centuries as evidenced by ancient phytomorphic ceramics from Peru depicting the fruits. Not known in the wild, but presumably native to the Andes where it has been traditionally cultivated. Cyclanthera pedata is grown at small scale farming in mountain areas of Mexico, Central America and South America. Known in the Andes as caigua [4] or caihua [4] possibly from Quechua kaywa ; [5] also as achocha [4] possibly from Quechua achuqcha. The fruits are eaten after removing the seeds and stuffing them with other foods like rice or meat, and then cooking them.
