Happy National Fry Day
Happy National Fry Day to all you Veggie Bottoms fanatics! In honor of National Fry Day, we’d like to introduce you to Russ Burbank Potato. Contrary to what you may have heard, potatoes aren’t evil! They’re extremely healthy – full of potassium, fiber, and loads of vitamins. Here’s some additional fun potato facts:
- The top potato producers in the United States are Idaho, Washington, and Wisconsin.
- According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest potato grown was over 7 pounds!
- The potato has been cultivated for at least 4,000 years and is believed to have originated in the Andean Mountains in South America.
- Potatoes are in the nightshade family – which means they’re in the same family of veggies as eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes!
