Jicama is a sweet, crunchy tropical tuber that resembles a radish in texture and a water chestnut in taste, and is enjoyed raw in salads and other cold dishes. The thin brown skin is first peeled away from the crisp white flesh. Choose jicamas that are firm and heavy. Store whole in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks; once cut, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for up to 1 week.
