Potatoes are not roots. They are stem tubers. The leaves of the potato plant manufacture food in the form of starch. This food is transferred through the plant to its underground stems, known as stolons. Starch collects at the end of the stolons, forming swollen sections called tubers. These tubers or underground stems are the potatoes.
