Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) is a species of herbaceous plants belonging to the Solanum genus from the Solanaceae family, which comes from South America. They are planted all over the world for its edible tubers.

It was first grown in the Andean plateau by the natives about 8,000 years ago, and later it was taken to Europe more as a botanic oddity than as an edible plant. Its consumption became more and more popular all over the world until it reached its current status as one of the most important foods for human consumption.
