Potatoes were a latecomer to Eastern Europe. First introduced in 16th century Spain by the conquistadores,
who discovered them in the Andes, they didn't really become a significant part of the European diet in general
until the early 19th century. Potatoes are easier to grow than wheat, yield more per acre than rye, and are highly nutritious, providing complete protein,
and ample amounts of Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, potassium and manganese. As a result, potatoes are a dietary mainstay in Europe and North America.
