Jicama 120 Days
Jicama vines can reach 12 – 20 feet producing an abundance of bright green leaves and blue to white flowers that peek out from underneath. The root is used much like a potato. This is a tropical vine and for the very best results will need around 9 months of frost free weather to produce the best tubers. Makes a great ground cover or trellis plant.
Creamy white roots are starchy, with a sweet flavor. Uses: Soups, raw like apple slices, and stir fry. Pair with lemons or limes, chili powder, cilantro and onions for a beautiful salsa.
Can be stored dry at 53-60 degrees F for 1-2 months
