      OK Thanks. Looks like it will be easy enough to find--now all I have to do is recognize it.

        Just bought it at No Frills at Carlaw. It looks like a nubby turnip, beige in colour.

            Yup. If I remember correctly it was near the beets (I may be a bit off, but that's what I think).

              Thanks pescatarian. Looked around for it at Carlaw and Gerard and found nothing. So I asked the 3 guys working in the Fruit and Veggie area at the time and they all said they had never heard of Jicama. So I went to T&T on Cherry street and found it there. Made Singapor Slaw with it. Susar has nothing to fear.

              Thanks for all the help.

                No problem. Too bad that the 3 guys working aren't familiar with the products sold in the store, but I just bought it there yesterday morning (and have purchased it there before). Glad you were able to find it at T&T and enjoyed a good slaw!

      The Forest Hill Loblaws has it.

        T&T & Whole Foods definitely have them.

          It's become pretty common around the GTA. I'd guess some of the better Danforth green grocers would have it.
