Just picked the first chokos from my vine and they are white! Is it a different variety? Isn't it supposed to be green? I bought the plant from local farmers markets.

Hi I would be interested in growing a white choko, been looking for them for ages, you wouldn't be able to send one through the mail, I will pay for freight, just email me if you can. Thanks
