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.
