How should jicama be stored?

Marisa Moore
Nutrition & Dietetics
Store whole, dry jicama in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

To maintain both quality and safety, store peeled and cut jicama in a sealed container in the refrigerator at below 40 °F or freezes it. If the jicama is cooked, also store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator. It should keep for up to 3 days.
