information about germany  PotsdamGermany, Brandenburg
Frederick the Great’s nickname is “the Old Fritz”.
Since 1750 he tried to enforce the cultivation of potatoes in Prussia to face famine. This effort culminated in the so-called Potato Command (1756, March 24th). About twenty years later the potato had become a common aliment. That’s why some people bring potatoes to his tomb up to now.
