Potatoes, that as we should know are tubers, come originally from Central America but they are nowadays widespread all around the world, Europe in particular. Being a tuber it means that the actual product is what lies under the soil and not the flower or the plant itself. Some potatoes produce small kinds of fruits like berries and which contain many seeds. There are different varieties of potatoes: white potatoes, yellow potatoes and red ones as well. It depends on the characteristic they have and the purposes they will be used for. Some are perfect for gnocchi, other to get fried for amazing french fries, and so on.
