There are over 4800 different edible varieties (cultivars) of potatoes grown around the world. Potato varieties differ from one another in many respects and may visually differ by as few as one trait, whether vague or obvious. In this catalogue variety-information is presented in table format complimented by the use of a symbol scheme that enables the reader to get a quick overview. Variety name and synonymes are organized alphabetically, but a separate chapter is also devoted to a listing of varieties in all countries, with a reference to the description of the variety. A further chapter provides the Wild Potato Collection at the International Potato Center (CIP) in Lima, Peru. The goal of this unique book is to provide relevant and up-to-date information on the genetic resources of old and new potato varieties. This knowledge can be used not only to identify new varieties but together with cultural and postharvest management practices, as a basis for a profitable and sustainable production for the grower, for improving competitiveness for the potato industry and for providing a healthy, inexpensive food supply for consumers around the globe. A valuable source for growers, breeders, researchers, traders, processors and other industry professionals.
