Jicama is sometimes called Mexican potato, this root vegetable has a mildly sweet, elusive flavor, and a crisp, moist texture. It looks something like a cross between a potato and a turnip, with a thin brown skin, a round, turnip-like form and tail, and smooth white flesh. Most Supermarkets carry Jicama in the Produce section of the store.
