The first potato crop planted in North America was at Londonderry Common Field in New Hampshire. Potatoes found their way from South America to Spain, and from there, they spread across Europe. They made their voyage to the New World in 1718 when the Rev. James MacGregor sailed to New Hampshire with a sack of seed potatoes. He planted his first crop in the colonial local common field in 1719. Source: LondonderryNH.net
