Potatoes have been a staple crop for growers and an integral component of the global food industry for centuries. Originating from the Andean mountains of South America, this tuber – a member of the Solanacea family – has since transformed agriculture in North America and beyond, becoming the most important non-grain crop in the world.
Potatoes are as diverse as the farmers who grow them and the cultures who consume them: the many cultivars offer an incredible variety of characteristics, including colour, shape, size, texture and flavour.
Phytocultures’ exotic varieties may be extraordinary in our region, but they are certainly not new: these genetics have survived through generations, resulting in resilient, delicious potatoes that can easily adapt to and tolerate all soil and growing conditions.
Our team has been carefully testing and selecting the most successful and hardy potatoes in order to produce the highest quality tubers with the most attractive genetics and traits for optimal commercial production. The result is exceptional varieties at the forefront of taste, production, and uniqueness.
