This week’s bag features red potatoes! The potato was first domesticated in the region of modern-day southern Peru and extreme northwestern Bolivia between 8000 and 5000 BC. It has since spread around the world and become a staple crop in many countries. Potatoes are generally cool-weather crops, but can thrive in warmer climates if planted at the right time and conditions. The red potato is smaller than the familiar “Russet” variety, has a thinner skin, contain less starch, and hold their shape better during cooking. Check out this week’s bag and celebrate some other staple veggies we are lucky to have growing locally!
