Giant ‘singkamas’ in Tabuk City could be one of the largest in PH


Tabuk City, Kalinga – Facebook netizens are drooling over a jicama vegetable or locally known as ‘singkamas’ dug up by an elderly in Bantay, Tabuk City.


The jicama is about the size of a basketball ball, according to Dandan Sannadan – the netizen who posted it on Facebook.

Sannadan said his grandma went to harvest some crops in her garden at Sitio Dalimuno, Bantay which led to the discovery of the “largest jicama they have ever seen.”


“It was the largest we have ever seen; something we never even thought was possible!” Sannadan expressed in his Facebook post.


The weight of the vegetable is yet to be known due to unavailability of weighing scale in the area.


“Haan da sa maawit da lolak nga iyapan kiloan ta nadagsen kanu, awan kadwa da nga lalaki ngamin,” Sannadan told through Messenger chat.

In the Guinness World Records, the heaviest jicama recorded so far weighs about 21 kilograms held by Leo Sutisna of Indonesia. This was uprooted in 2008.


In the Philippines, a resident in Cabittaogan, Ilocos Sur also chanced to uproot a 23-kilogram jicama in 2010.
