Potatoes are tubers, fleshy underground stems that bear minute leaves, each of which develops a bud capable of producing a new plant. Potatoes are cultivated in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Their weight can range from 1 ounce to more than a pound. The skin can be smooth or rough, and tan, white, red, or any of a variety of less common colors. The flesh is usually white but can be yellow to deep orange and has a smooth to mealy texture. In flavor, they range from bland to buttery sweet.
