The potato plant (Solanum tuberosum) may not be your favourite as far as flowers are concerned but, there is no denying that the plant’s blossom has an enchanting beauty. Flowers can be white in colour or violet. The plant flowers at the end of spring and during the summer. Pleasing as the flower may be to the eye, it contains the poisonous Glycoalkaloid solanine, and so does the potato fruit. Not to worry though as solanine decomposes when boiled. The plant is not indigenous to Mallorca. It came to Spain from South America.
