Q. Jicama bean (MexicanPotato)

How deep do I plant the seeds, and do I build a string trellis like with a pole bean?

As with any seed, you will want to plant it twice as deep as the seed is wide. This is a good general rule to follow for most things.

These vines can reach about 20 feet in length, and a trellis would be a great idea!
