Do you know Caribbean "roots"?

These are items we used in our dinner last night. The root veg on the left is a sweet potato, but do you know what the other two are? Middle two are the same.

The round one on the right looks like a jicama (pronounced hickama).

Tubers or not tubers...that is the question!
