Pachyrhizus erosus

 Jicama is a dense, mildly sweet, hearty vegetable with a pleasing crunch. It's a popular ingredient in many cuisines, like Mexican, and goes well with a wide range of dishes. Toss it in a salad or add it to a soup by slicing or shredding it. Crispy and sweet

1 jicama-food serving is 23.25 oz and contains 250 calories.

There is no fat, there is no cholesterol, sodium deficiency regulator, Potassium, 128 percent of the daily fiber intake is recommended Vitamin C is recommended to be taken at a dose of 221 percent per day. An Iron-rich food for us.

  Growing jicama,  or Yam Bean, is a lot like growing pole beans, except you eat the root and every other part of the plant is poisonous. We have had so so luck with them in a Fall planting here in Tampa, if the winter is mild. Where they really shine, is during our long days of summer.  These really do take 5 months and need to soak up all the Sun they can get.  Not sure if it'll work but we are attempting to leave some of the tubers in the ground to see if they resprout in the Spring and grow more tubers without seeding. Will let you know. (3/17/21)

After you place your order, we will contact you to arrange the soil delivery. Please note that our trailer or dump truck is large and heavy, with a limited turning radius. We cannot be held responsible for any damage within 1.5 ft of the edge of the driveway or the designated delivery area. If there are plants, grass, artificial turf, sprinkler heads, or any other items within 1.5 ft of the edge, they may be damaged. We are not liable for any damage unless it is due to gross driver negligence. Driveway surfaces (concrete, shell, pavers, turf, etc.) and anything within 1.5 ft of the drive may experience cracking, splitting, breaking, depressions, tracks, etc. Please be aware that large item deliveries carry inherent risks. If the driver determines that it is unsafe to dump the soil in your desired location, they will either choose a safe alternative or the soil will not be delivered, but the delivery fee will still apply.
