Jicama or Yam Bean

1 Review | Write a Review

(Pachyrhizus erosus) 120 days. Long vines can grow twenty feet long and produce delicious tubers. These have become very popular in the last few years. Very long season; these must be started very early in all areas except the deep South. Caution: The seeds and pods are poisonous, but the small pods are cooked in the Philippines.

What are the pros? large root, easy to grow

What are the cons? long growing time, has vines


I loved this plant. It has an excellent flavor, reminiscent of apples. The texture is like water chestnuts. Every member loved these. My only regret is I grew too few. We are in Florida, and have a long season. I might not be able to grow this if my season was very short.
