Google doodle today celebrates Peru's National POTATO day - ask me a question
The potato was first domesticated in the region of modern-day Peru and Bolivia between 8000 and 5000 BC.
Potatoes were introduced outside the Andes region four centuries ago, and have become an integral part of much of the world's cuisine. It is the world's fourth-largest food crop, following rice, wheat and maize.
Peru cultivates 2,800 of the 3,900 varieties in existence in the world.
