A bit of slang originating from the depths of Chicago University (purportedly by a one Tyler Brown). It is essentially a positive term in the vein of cool, mad, awesome, hip, ill, wicked, narly, tubular, sweet, bodacious, bitchin', killer, phat, rad, and perhaps righteous (if you happen to still be in the seventies).

Pronunciation: Both syllables rhyme with the word "dough." Emphasis is on the first syllable.

The variant Choko Ono is sometimes used for special emphasis (this being a clever pun on the name of Yoko Ono).

Example: " Deltron has mad beats; his new song is so choko."

Australian name for the Chayote.

The choko vine was once an essential addition to any garden, and was usually grown over the toolshed or dunny. The vine grows from a deep buried tuber, and has distinctive spiral tendrils like telephone cords which it uses to hang onto whatever structure it is using for support.

The fruit tastes like lukewarm water, no matter what you do with it. If you add too much curry to a dish you can actually remove some by briefly boiling a peeled choko in the pot.
