Robbie’s Produce Tips: Local Jicama

  • Now is absolutely best time of the year to buy this weight-loss inducing, super succulent gem.
  • Great for jicama saladIMG_1601
  • Choose jicama that’s as white as possible. Older jicama tends to get brown marks on it.
  • It should feel dry. Older ones will have a slimy film on it.
  • Our jicama is local from Modesto and taste outstanding, but because it isn’t cured for as long as the non-local variety it should be eater sooner rather than later.
  • I always like to wrap my unused jicama and place it in the fridge for a longer shelf life.
