The fingerling potatoes in this collection originate from the Andes in Peru, and Argentina. These were brought to Europe in the early 1500’s. Plant breeding in Europe began in earnest in the mid-1800s using the varieties that had brought from South America earlier. France, Germany, England, and the Netherlands led the way in plant breeding, producing the other varieties in this collection.
