This study aimed to determine the levels of vitamin C and protein in old chayote fruit seeds. The vitamin C were analyzed using a UV-Vis spectrophotometer, while the protein were analyzed using the Kjeldahl method. Results showed that level of the vitamin C in old fruit seeds was by 0.56%, while the protein level obtained was by 0.81%.
