More potatoes, please!

Here's another variety, from a farm near here.  Seems to be an easy plant to grow.  I suspect they are buzz pollinated, like their Solanum siblings, the tomatoes.  Tomatoes are complicated to grow in places that don't have buzzy enough bees.  But we know how to grow potatoes without pollination.  Just stick part of one with an eye in the ground.  Even on Mars.  I loved that movie.  "Greatest botanist on the planet!"
