This root is unusually large - commonly 10-15 inches but can be as much as 2 feet in length. It is heavy, the skin is coarse and scarred. Its shape is elongated, tapered at both ends, and irregularly convoluted in the middle.
Select firm, sound individuals. Dirt and/or mold on any exposed surface is usually superficial, so can be cut off, leaving the rest of the root fit for consumption.
