Traces the history of the potato from its beginnings in South America to the development of variety breeding. It explains all aspects of growing, from choosing seed potatoes, planting and maintenance, to harvest, storage, and pests and diseases. This is a definitive guide to over 150 varieties currently available in Europe and provides scientifically based assessments of yield, characteristics, and disease resistance. With descriptions of varieties - mainly 'heritage' (pre-1950) - that have recently become available as microplants, it contains everything the potato grower needs to know!
