Does anybody know where to get a good potato identification poster, like the ones that were in the schools in 70's. I tried the potato council, no luck there. When I need to buy spuds out here (Bulgaria), they are not marked, other than country of origin. It is pot luck!

I was also wondering if anybody knew of a place that would send potato seeds to Europe, or if anybody knows of a supplier in Bulgaria. Well I dont know if I don't ask, people know stuff!
