The numerous Irish descendants over here are possibly a result of the famine that hit Ireland when the country's potato crop was hit with black rot. Many Irish fled to America and Australia. Potatoes are the most cultivated vegetable in Australia.
There are numerous varieties of potato (see specific listings) but two specific types - floury and waxy. Floury have a high starch content while waxy have a low starch content. New potatoes are small waxy potatoes with thin skins.
