People of the US I really need your help. When I visited your fair land last year I was fascinated and indeed overcome by the quality and quantity

of your culinary delights. Unfortunately my good wife was unable to accompany me and I did want to share some of my gastronomic experiences with her.

I am trying to locate a vegetable (it may be a fruit, I am not 100% sure) but I do believe it is only available in the Americas.

The 'vegetable' I am looking for is brown in colour (color) and quite hard when uncooked, it has a lovely white flower on it's stem. I had tried them raw but found this disagreeable to the pallet however, when cooked they were delicious. I am not very sure of the name but I believe the locals referred to this delicacy as a 'tuber' or a 'potato'. I would like honour my wife by cooking some of these 'potato's' and to let her experience the gastronomical joy that I found in your dear country. Could you please tell me if there is some sort of export service that could deliver these 'potato's' to my home town of Skegness.

I respectfully await your guidance.

They can also be ordered from Poland (maybe already imported to your locale), in an arguably superior form

I didn't know there was a place that didn't have potatoes

Might I suggest consuming some of the native versions from their original source in the Andes in South America? I particularly enjoy the Papa Cacho fingerling variety.

Potatoes are easy to grow. You only need one in fact. Plenty of videos on YouTube that show how to grow potatoes. They'll grow most anywhere, even indoors where it's too cold to grow outside.

The potato may be native to the Americas but I thought they were pretty globally universal these days. Except perhaps in your neighboring Ireland during the famine a couple centuries ago.
Think ya might be talkin' 'bot TATERS!!!

@LordShadowfire Boil them, mash them, stick them in a stew.
