Inspired by Mark's video I purchased some seeds from Green Harvest. I soaked them overnight and now they are going into seed raising mix in pots. We are going away tomorrow for two weeks so they will be safely stored in the greenhouse. Very excited to see them when I come back home (as others say - not sure how I fitted work in before retirement).

Jicama seeds on absorbent paper prior to planting. They are now in pots, hopefully growing into seedlings in a couple if weeks.

Hi Dan, how did these go?

I was at a local fruit & veg shop this afternoon and found Jicama tubers. I grabbed one to try out but then thought I'd give it a go planting it and see what comes (if anything).

We are of course in the wrong climate down this way but sometimes just have to experiment.
