Jicama or Yambean is also known as a Mexican potato. The one in this photo has been waxed to preserve freshness in the market, which is the reason for its shiny appearance. Jicama is a crunchy, sweet, juicy tuber that is great to eat raw; just peel it and cut in strips or cut into salads or eat them with dips. The label says that it is often paired with chili powder, lemon, lime, oranges, ginger or even soy sauce. See the nutritional chart (below) for more information.
