In Search of Jicama

The Frederick News Post food section had an article about Jicama this morning called “In search of Jicama“.  I love Jicama.  It’s kind of like a large crispy, sweeter, water chestnut if you’ve never had it.  We have a recipe for jicama-watercress salad that is a must have with paella.  In fact I can’t have one without the other.  The problem is I am almost always in search of jicama too.  I can’t find it anywhere with regularity even though it’s in season late fall to spring.  Anyone have any tips?
