Now you can buy Jicama seeds from David's Garden Seeds®! Over the years, a lot of customers have asked if we sell them and now we do. If you have never eaten it, you are in for a treat! My grandmother always got it at the supermarket and she would slice it up. It sort of is like a pear, only with a better texture. It tastes sweet. I will grow some in the spring. It is not a fall plant.
Jicama (Mexican Turnip) 25 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Also known as a Mexican Turnip, Jicama is a root vegetable that is a sweet delight. This does not in any way, shape, or form taste like a turnip and it does not have the mushy texture that a turnip has. Pull it up, wash it, peel it, and slice it thin. It is delicious and makes a great snack as is or in a salad.
The plant produces tall climbing vines and a white turnip shaped root that tastes like water chestnuts. The large tuberous roots can be eaten raw or cooked and are used as a source of starch. The Jicama plant is a vine that grows to a length of 20 feet or more. The roots are light brown in color and may weigh up to 50 pounds. Most of those on the market will weigh between 3 to 5 pounds.
Only one root forms per plant.
Store in a cool dry place after harvest. Also known as the Mexican
potato and Yam Bean. An excellent choice for home gardens, farmer’s
markets, and market growers. Harvest in 150 days.
All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to
maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific
locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and
nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in
your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
