YOU LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY…
The potato (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial nightshade Solanum tuberosum. The word “potato” may refer either to the plant itself or to the edible tuber. In the Andes, where the species is indigenous, there are some other closely related cultivated potato species. Potatoes were introduced to Europe in the second half of the 16th century by the Spanish, and have since become an integral part of much of the world’s food supply. It is the world’s fourth-largest food crop, following maize, wheat, and rice.
