Seed Potatoes - Vegetables
Potatoes are grown from what are known as "seed potatoes" which are potatoes saved from the previous years crop and not really anything to do with seeds. This is a vegetative means of propagation so the resulting potato plants are genetically identical to the parent so giving a true variety. Many of the seed potatoes sold in the UK (and many other countries too) are grown in Scotland in areas that have a much lower risk of disease.
