Jicama

The jicama root, also called the Mexican turnip or the Mexican potato, is a plant that grows in the Americas. Some people eat its leaves but most people eat its white root, which can weigh up to 40 pounds. Jicama has a really clean, fresh and crisp flavor that reminds some people of raw pear. It is mostly eaten raw, shredded and put on salad or seasoned with lime and chili powder.
