There are more than 575 + types of potatoes and the list is probably still growing since they are crossbred all the time. However potatoes can be more generally broken down by their skin: Russet, Red, Yellow, White, Blue and Purplest from flavour, Sweet, flowery, hard, bitter, easy cook, long cook , etc

and some potatoes are evolving bigger and new.4500 to date. mostly from Peru where they originate from. Cross breeding is not the problem , they are looking for a breed that is stronger than any blight , disease and still easy to grow in arid regions of the world. All plants need water but any type of tuber need more than the rest. But as long as the water is not infected then washing up water would be OK as long as it is not fed from above but allowed to trickle in from below ground when the earth itself can filter it. Survival of the fittest. potatoes are one of those which do but also need feeding the correct way. Peru is quite an arid country but they use their land and water courses frugally, they plant near or as close to where water is available. New potatoes are small because they have not had enough time to grow, that is fine because they taste good, but so does a week old Lamb. (sorry veggie eater's younger it is the tastier it is. But spuds are growing at a grater rate than we know, in China it is becoming more a staple diet than rice. perhaps there will be a super race of potato one day, one that the Irish people won't forget where they planted them, (joking) sorry for the quip, Potatoes , rice, (grass) , corn what else is there as a staple diet grown on the land that can sustain the world. I hope there is!
