Nono, actually potatoes are from America. Dunno if its north or south, but they are from there. Ireland was the second of two countries in Europe to buy potatoes. First one was Portugal, cause the main ships basically departed from there back in I dunno 15th century ?
Potatoes and Tomatoes are from South America.
As long as we're doing South America, llamas are pretty badass.
