What are the different types of jicama?

There are two types of jicama that are cultivated: jicama de agua and jicama de leche. The former is round and squat with clear juice,

while the latter is more tapered in shape, with milky-white juice.

What is the best way to eat jicama?

Once it’s peeled, the jicama can be broken down like an onion: Cut the jicama in half, then slice it into half-moons, matchsticks, or dice it.

You can eat jicama raw, bake it like fries or chips, or saute it with other vegetables.
