        Saving the World’s Potatoes

        There are 5,000 varieties of native potatoes grown by farmers in the South American Andes Mountains, many so diverse we might not recognize them as potatoes! In this audio segment from PRI's The World Science Podcast, we learn about some of these extraordinary specimens and hear about the mission to protect them, as well as the farmers who grow them.

        The World Science Podcast is a weekly production of The World.

        This segment was adapted from The World Science Podcast 42. Find out more about The World Science Podcast.
