Does potatoes grow in Mexico?
Of course. During 2008, there was a production of 1.67 million metric tons of potatoes in Mexico.
The potato tubers are planted just beneath the soil surface. Once producing foliage and growing well, they are earth up to stop them being exposed to sunlight. Exposure to sunlight will turn the tubers green and make them inedible due to producing solanine, a natural toxin that causes nausea and other intestinal upsets.
