Thanks all. Lois is the winner> It is Jicama. The new lot looks flatter
and bigger in diameter than the ones I saw a couple of days ago.  Also,
it wasn't as smooth and symmetrical. 

It comes from Mexico. There's a phonetic spelling of the name
'Hee-kah-mah' on the label, but no information on what plant it is. The
vendor, Frieda's of LA, offers recipes for a SSAE. According to their web
<>, it is also known as a Mexican potato or a yam
bean. But still no plant information.

So what is it? Will it grow here (NC). What will it look like?
