Inside, you'll find white flesh that looks like an apple or raw potato. Raw jicama is sweet, juicy, and crisp, perfect as a snack vegetable. It's a good substitute for water chestnuts in stir-fries.

Guava









Guavas are one of the most common fruits you'll find on the street. They are always in season and always popular for afternoon snack. Thai guavas are about the size of an apple, or slightly larger. The thin skin is light green while the meat of the fruit is usually white, with a very similar texture to an apple. At the center of the fruit is a cluster of small hard seeds about the size of a peppercorn. There are also varieties with pink flesh, although these are usually rare.
