150 days. Pacchyrhizus erosus. Open Pollinated. Jicama. The plant produces tall climbing vines and a white turnip-shaped root that tastes like water chestnuts.

The roots are light brown in color and may weigh up to 50 pounds. Most of those on the market will weigh between 3 to 5 pounds. Only one root forms per plant. Store in a cool dry place after harvest. Also known as the Mexican potato and Yam Bean. An excellent choice for home gardens, farmer’s markets, and market growers. A variety from Dzan, Yucatan, Mexico.

Planting Instructions: Soak seeds overnight in warm water (8 to 15 hours). Plant seeds 1" deep every 2 ½ feet one to two weeks after the last frost in your area. Wait to plant the seeds until the soil has warmed up in your garden. Jicama requires at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day so select a sunny area in the garden and allow room for vines to spread.

Soil Facts: Seeds require well-prepared soil. Use general-purpose fertilizer when preparing the soil. Choose a location in the garden that has well-drained soil. Make sure the soil is alkaline with a pH over 7. You can test this easily with a commercial pH tester. Remember seeds require warmth to germinate, so plant in a sunny location and after the soil has warmed.

Germination: 12 - 18 days at 70°F
