POTATOES: THE BASICS
Long History. The ancient Incas were cultivating this humble tuber thousands of years ago. The potato was not readily accepted in Europe, however, because it was a member of the nightshade family and thought poisonous. In the 16th century, Sir Walter Raleigh was instrumental in debunking the poisonous potato superstition when he planted them on property he owned in Ireland. The Irish knew a good thing when they saw it and a hundred years later were growing and consuming the potato in great quantities. Today, hundreds of varieties of this popular vegetable are grown around the world. Basic Categories. In America, the potato can be divided into four basic categories: russet (also called "Idaho" potatoes, these have mealy flesh), long white, round white and round red (often called "new" potatoes). New Potatoes. New potatoes have indeed become synonymous with small potatoes. But new potatoes are really young, just-dug potatoes, the first of the season and much coveted. If you ever have the chance to taste the potatoes in Finland and the rest of Scandinavia around Midsummer, eat as many as you can! I wrote an ode to Finnish potatoes in here, Finnish Summer Potato Salad. We are determined to grow them in our garden! See Also Sweet Potatoes.
