Yam Bean - มัน แกว - Mexican Potato Jicama - Singkamas - Potato Bean

Jicama is also called Mexican yam bean or Chinese potato. Like potatoes, jicama grows underground as a tuber. Covered with a thin brown skin, it has a short root attached. 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.
