POTATOES

Heirloom Potatoes

                       The potato originated thousands of years ago in South America along the western side of the continent.  By the time the Spanish explorers learned about this unique vegetable, the native people of Peru had developed hundreds of different varieties, thus creating a large genetic pool.  There were always some varieties that grew well, no matter what the weather.
