White Potato

New Hampshire designated the white potato (Solanum tuberosum) as the official state vegetable in 2013, due to efforts by Derry Village Elementary School after learning that an Irish immigrant brought a sack of seed potatoes to the area in 1719, making New Hampshire the first state to cultivate the white potato.
