Potatoes are tubers with swollen apex of underground stems, which are underground organs used to store starch. Potatoes are sometimes slightly sweet, and often have a peculiar bit of bitterness and earthiness. It is one of the main food crops in the world, and together with rice, wheat, corn and sorghum, it is called the five major crops in the world. It is rich in nutrients and is called "underground apple" in France, and also has the title of "second bread" in Europe and the United States.

Brown class potatoes have irregular dark parts on the skin; Heart potato means that the potato flesh is yellow, but it does not mean that the potato skin is also yellow.

May Queen: It is long oval in shape and is a representative variety of slime. It is easier to peel and will not boil. Red Andes (Red Andes): The skin is red, and the flesh is yellow like sweet potatoes. On the palate it is viscous, sweet and intense.
Cynthia: Oval in shape with light yellow flesh. Sticky and creamy, it won't overcook when stewed.
And all varieties are further divided into newborn potatoes and mature potatoes. Newborn potatoes refer to immature tubers harvested from late spring to summer. Young potatoes are moist and sweet, and have low starch content, but they rot faster.
According to the texture of potatoes when they are cooked, they can be divided into two categories:
The "silty type" is mainly brown-skinned blue meat and purple meat. When cooking, the cells will condense more dry starch, which will make a fine and fluffy texture, suitable for frying, roasting, and making mashed potatoes.
"Waxy" is mainly newborn potatoes and common red and white varieties. When cooked, the cells will bond more firmly and produce a firm and moist texture. It is suitable for baking, hash browns and salads.

The apple will produce ethylene gas, which can delay the ripening of the potato, and it can be stored for about 7 days. Putting it in the cold room of the refrigerator, avoiding light and low temperature environment is also very helpful for delaying the germination of potatoes. Generally, potatoes can be successfully preserved for about 2 months by using the above method.
