potato-portraits

Around 1900 there was a lot of activity in making new potato-varieties in the Netherlands. Among others by Frisian teacher Kornelis Lieuwes de Vries who introduced the Bintje in 1905. Bintje became one of the most famous Dutch potatoes. Bintje is named after his then 17-year-old darling pupil Bintje Jansma. I don’t know if you would get away with that nowadays. I am incredibly curious what stories there are behind the names of all these different potato varieties.
