Organic jicama?

edited December 2010 in Food Preparation

Anyone know of organic jicama? I’ve checked all of our local health food stores – and it seems that organic jicama isn’t to be found. Also, does anyone know about how jicama is usually grown – should I avoid the non-organic variety? Thanks!

  • my local produce guy (in brooklyn ny) said he’s absolutely unable to get organic jicama from any of his suppliers.

  • Same here…I’ve tried. It’s my guess that it’s just not a heavily sprayed crop and probably has minimal pesticides on it because of this. Chef Kristen Suzanne www.KristensRaw.com
