I looked on the veggie and fruit list and I didn't see it on any of them. Any experience with that?
I went online to find it. Everything but the root is poisonous. It is also called Mexican potato or Mexican turnip. Also yam bean.
I found it under yam bean on the house bunny poisonous group. Do Not Feed to Bunny. So you may definitely want to pass on this one.
hehe,.. your not alone I tried googling it but i only typed in "list of veggies that are bad for rabbits" or something like that... lol and i couldn't find it anywhere. But Now that BT mentioned the diff names, I did a different search and finallly found it .
Here's a list if you need any other help with poisonous veggies/plants.
Jicama is too high in the starch category, just like potatoes (impaction/blockage issues) so it is not a good idea to give it to a rabbit and keep it for yourself.
I know that this is not the coveted BB official veggie list, but it is one that my local HRS has and it does list jicama as not safe for the same reasons I listed above:
lol You know what is So funny..my husband is a "professional computer geek" and he tells me all the time that one day I am going to be googling and get an alert that says I have seen everything there is to see on the internet! I crack up every single time he says this to me.
