You can find fresh fruit stands on every corner. Fresh picked, organic and delicious!
The trees are filled with heavy branches of fruit. Mangoes are sweet and avocados green and creamy!
My mom, who was living there at the time, had a hill garden behind her home full of tropical avocados, pineapple, bananas, limes and tons of herbs!
Anyway, back to jicama. From a corner fruit stand, I had a cup full of sliced jicama sprinkled with salt and chili pepper mix. IT. WAS. the. BEST! Oh I loved the crunch and flavor. Delicious!
I have yet to find a bite of jicama that good. But still, this imported jicama is delightful mixed with other fruits.
If you are lucky enough to grow jicama locally, enjoy it!
