Veggie of the Month:
The Tavon vegetable of the month for February is the POTATO! Some fun facts about this starchy veggie:
Potatoes are vegetables but they contain a lot of starch (carbohydrates) that make them more like rice, pasta and bread in terms of nutrition.
Potatoes are 80% water!
The word potato comes from the Spanish word patata.
Potato plants are usually pollinated by insects such as bumblebees.
Potatoes contain a variety of vitamins and minerals.
There are thousands of different potato varieties but not all are commercially available. Popular ones include Russet, Yukon Gold, Kennebec, Desiree and Fingerling.
