Potato from the ancestors

Ive bought a bunch of heritage potatoes from Koanga. I'm gonna try and grow some over winter and the rest come summer. These will all be potatoes that ancestors brought to this land.

Ive got two Māori potatoes, the rīwai kikorangi, and the Whataroa potato.

Also those Scots potato brought here by a Scottish immigrant in the 19th century.

Lastly the Stewart island potato of unknown origin found growing on Rakiura Island.
