Root vegetable seen at the Farmers Market in Fremont.
Similar to Turnips, but white in color.
Is this Jicama?

Looks like a swede or a rutabaga to me. Jicamas are more rounded. I remember seeing these in Europe and was told these were rutabagas.

Garg Ji,
I had found a link suggesting Jicama and looking exactly like my pictures.
May be Gurcharan Ji can have a look.
