This sweet-tasting, juicy tuber is traditionally grown in South America. Although not related, it is similar in flavor and texture to jicama (only sweeter) and is longer and thinner (average size is 5–6 inches long by 2–3 inches wide). It can be eaten raw or cooked and is generally peeled. Try it baked and mashed or sliced fresh in salads..
