Did you know?

That potatoes originally came from South America?

It is still unclear when, how and by whom the potatoes were brought to Europe. Nonetheless, they found their way from South America to Spain, where the history of their cultivation in Europe officially began. This is also how we received other plants and fruits such as tomatoes, green beans, peppers and corn. Today, they all play an important part of our diet, but the potato is still the most important of them all.
