Jicama 25 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Jicama is a root vegetable that is a sweet delight. This does not in any way, shape, or form taste like a turnip and it does not have the mushy texture that a turnip has. Pull it up, wash it, peel it, and slice it thin. It is delicious and makes a great snack as is or in a salad.
The plant produces tall climbing vines and a white turnip shaped root that tastes like water chestnuts. The large tuberous roots can be eaten raw or cooked and are used as a source of starch. The Jicama plant is a vine that grows to a length of 20 feet or more. 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. An excellent choice for home gardens, farmer’s markets, and market growers. Harvest in 150 days. Germination rate about 80% or better.
Our Non-GMO seeds are sustainable. Our packaging is environmentally friendly, climate friendly, reusable, and recyclable.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
