    Do you have the Sevil or the really sweet type?

    I prefer the Seville, earwax bitter type but not commercial.

    I do not know what the farmers do here but the old rule was that potato cannot be planted to the same field year after year. Also there are things you must not put into the ground. Ash is one if I remember right.

    Wrong,
    so a good few cultivars have been mentioned... I does not make some of those nasties cook and prepare any better,
    Like Siffra and Mondial... I know to avoid these at all costs, to the extent of rather going without

    Every cultivar has its specific use.
    We should learn that like you learn the specs on your 4x4 before blaming the 4x4 for it's lack of capability in a certain area not knowing that your 4x4 cannot perform well in that specific area.

    Can Wait, please really do this

    Our potatoe board does not do any promotion at all ... They all wrapped up in Siffra and Mondial, conniving with Escom how we can spend more on electricity to soften our potatoes

    I did grocery shopping yesterday and today. All shops (including Woollies) only have Sifra. I wasn't interested. Got the only other cultivar I could get at Pick 'n Pay, Valor. According to the label it seems to be similar to Up-to-date. We'll see.
    Current - 2009 Mazda BT50 3.0CRDi 4x4 d/c
    Previous - 2005 Ranger 2.5 tdi 4x2 d/c (277 422km)

    The last packet we have with few potatoes left has no cultivar and not even the name of the grower. Not the first and not the last time.

    Generally I find it difficult to find cultivar anywhere.

    Please do not tell me that you eat the skin.

    P.S.

    Potato was the stable food after Swedish turnip in Finland. Average usage was 70 kg/person/year at one time.

    Swedish king ordered the semi state church to educate the people how to use the potato. It was needed as people thought that they had to eat what was about the ground. That stuff is deadly. Today DO NOT EAT GREEN POTATO. Keep all potatoes in darkness.

    Irish were planting too much. Wheat was used primarily for Uisce beatha and when the plight hit there was no food. Many of them went to America as a result. There were something like over 100 distilleries in Dublin only. American prohibition killed the industry as there were so many bad copies of the good stuff.

    Mugabe said: Eat potatoes when there was no mielies for pap. Zim did not produce potatoes.

    History is interesting - can it be trusted is the only question.

    No. You still take them off. On young before cooking and on older after cooking.

    Please eat then double brown bread, no white flower or rice, Oranges with peels... pap you cannot get
