I am planting a choko and was wondering what fertiliser to use when planting it?

Don't fertiliser when you plant. Either mix the fertiliser in a few weeks before you plant or wait until after the plants have grown a bit before fertilizing. Just a normal veggie growing fertiliser. 10-12 N, 3-4-5 P, 10-14K.
