Chef Deena has prepared food for celebrities such as Eryka Badu (Female Music Artist), Carl Jones (Boondocks/Black Dynamite animation production) and even Pablo Medina (Dr. Sebi’s Cell Food – Herbalist).
I finally met Chef Deena during my second visit to Dr. Sebi’s Cell Food in Los Angeles, California. She made a lot of food. I enjoyed everything she made with two amazing things taking place. 1) I got to try what I had been waiting to try for a long time; someone’s tuna replacement. Chef Deena’s tuna replacement tasted just like tuna. 2)
I ate all that food and didn’t get sleepy like I usually would if I ate a lot of food. My room refrigerator could not hold a lot of food, so I ate all the food that could not fit in the refrigerator that night. I thought it was a lot of food but I got through it in less than 30 minutes. My mother would probably say, “well you never did chew your food!” lol.
I also caught up with Chef Deena while she was in Virginia during graduation season since she was so close to North Carolina and I ordered about 30 pounds of her “Nuttin Like Tuna.” I brought it back to Durham, NC and shared it with my community. I bought little containers, wrapped a label around them and divided them up among my associates so that they could also share with their friends. Everyone loved it.
Chef Deena is an incredibly wonderful person with a tremendous amount of LOVE in her heart. Her passion for health and Dr. Sebi’s message is translated into her food preparation. Healing through food is definitely the way to go as far as Chef Deena is concerned. I am impressed enough to do all the I can to support her and promote her abilities and services. Quickly I wrote a song for her and had it completed in a professional studio.
I want many people of the world to know about Dr. Sebi, but I also would like for many people of the world to know about the very people who are doing things to help keep the legacy of his contributions alive. Even her best friend prepares food according to the African Biomineral Balance Nutritional Guide. These two people together had me trying all sorts of foods that were once my favorites foods with the meat category. It was an amazing experience that I hope thousands of others will have the opportunity to experience in the future. Veggie deli and cafes will soon open all over the country to offer food according to Dr. Sebi’s Nutritional Guide. This can happen sooner the more people like Chef Deena receives support. Visit her website and commit to placing an order for something at least once a week.
In the supreme court, I asked the judged, “if God made food special for gorillas, special for polar bears, special for orangutans, special for birds and not all bids eat seeds, some eat snakes and meat. So if God made specific food for specific animal God made also specific food for plants; this is a burdock leaf. You appease to burdock for what? For iron! You don’t appease to burdock for magnesium. Magnesium is in trace mineral here, but iron is predominant! So there’s a food for this plant. So I asked the judge, “Well if the plant, the animal, the birds has specific food that feed their selves; what about homosapiens – are we exempt from that natural cosmic law? She said, “no.” I said, “well, when you remove the African from Africa did you bring his food with him?” She said, “no.” So you see, so when you said that “I like my ham,” that’s not your ham, that’s not your chicken, that’s not your biscuits. That is something that we have been conditioned to eat. And because we have been conditioned to eat those things, it makes love difficult to come out. When I talk to my wife I have to, “girl what’s wrong with you??”
Many times Dr. Sebi has spoken about Love. “We must love ourselves first” he would say. But all the while he was talking about creating an internal condition that would not be chaotic on the cellular structure and organs. You would learn this from watching plenty of his videos. When the body is fighting a losing battle against mucus because our consistent consumption of detrimental food is depriving our cells and rendering them compromised, the person’s conduct will reflect his destructive internal state onto external relationships and interactions with people where the conduct is just as bad. Dr. Sebi says he would snap at his wife and at one point he even wanted to kill her. When he was healed, he felt differently.
March is Myeloma Action month according to institutions and foundations that seek to inform people of this disease and how it can be removed. Dr. Sebi addresses it in a very simple way.
Now in dealing with Myeloma what part of the body we dealing with? BONE! And in dealing with bones, what is the mineral? Calcium! So are we gonna use the oxide calcium or the phosphate calcium of the plants? Phosphate calcium! Ya see how smart we are we already became doctors in five seconds.
Bones have to harden after going through a process where they are made to be soft in order to grow from children to adults. Myeloma is when the hardening process does not kick in. This is when B cells are tricked into allowing a growth stage in our bone where the bones are softened without triggering the hardening process of our bones (the application of calcium) in preparation for growth of a growing body or the maintenance of a healthy body and the immune system fails to recognize the activity as a threat. The microbe responsible for this is capable of cloning itself as a natural threat (just like herpes) by developing a suitable message as a cytokine (chemical molecule and messenger between immunological cells) and infiltrates until they outmatch the population of the B cells.
THE SOLUTION AND THE CURE
1. Boost the immune system and the increase circulation. Since the microbe responsible for this disease is in an area where circulation is not the strongest it can only mimic the cytokine that is complimentary to an already compromised immune system. The immune system can be boosted by breaking the cycle of consistent consumption of acid/mucus causing foods – by FASTING. The immune system can also be boosted by increasing the mineral content of the carbon based body which is usually stripped and removed by acid conditions. We specifically look to increase our composition in iron, calcium and potassium phosphate. New cytokines are attached to healthier cells and will not be able to be mimic. Now all that has to be done is exercises (increasing circulation) or the consumption of potassium phosphates (natural diuretics like Dr. Sebi’s Fucus and Eva Salve) which will help flush the new and stronger material in and without the microbe being able to mimic the cytokine it will be detected and flushed out.
2. Consume plant-based calcium (phosphate calcium) so that the body is capable of making a contribution towards establishing strong and healthy bones. Dr. Sebi’s Bromide Plus (powder | capsule) is jam packed with calcium. He often demonstrates the power of consistently consuming his mix of sea moss & bladderwreck (Bromide) by dropping to his knees, even above the age of 80.
The same system can be used to cure herpes. Including the use of Bromide, you would use either of the compounds that will have a more aggressive affect (for quicker healing) in cleansing and nourishing the nervous system, such as the banju, iron plus, Bio Ferro (tonic | Capsule), green food plus, viento, testo & estro, and lily of the valley from the therapeutic package.
Okay so you’re talking to your doctor about what he/she is prescribing to you for your heart condition and you mention Dr. Sebi’s products. Then he asks, “what in it?” Of course you tell him/her that it’s all natural plant-based herbs, but the doctor says “well I just want to make sure that there is nothing in there that can cause you some blood pressure concerns.” Now he’s got your attention right? LOL.
These are compounds; a combination of herbs. The medication that most doctors prescribe will have a combination of ingredients. One ingredient from the product that the doctors is prescribing might cause you some blood pressure concerns, but while mixed with other ingredients it will not cause you those concerns. Simply ask the doctor, “which ingredient in the product you are prescribing might give me some blood pressure concerns?” Anywho, here is a list of ingredients of the cell food products.
Dr. Sebi has stated that it has taken him 18 years to learn how to combine herbs just right. Please study these herbs as much as you can if you plan on making your own compounds and be as careful as you can in mixing them. Some herbs are far more aggressive than others.
Dr. Sebi’s Original and Unique formulas are proprietary and may contain ingredients not listed for each of the compounds made available here.
We are no stranger to disease as it cripples us by our feet (i.e. gout), grabs our heart, organs and precious colon in order to claim the best of our lives. Illness has never had a boring time with our lives and has never even considered our head and face off limits. Which brings us to the topic of the day; Bell’s Palsy.
When there is a nerve condition hormones tend to contract or retain or they don’t do their work cause they are held back; there’s a nerve condition. You know like, even the muscles contract, the muscle in your face contract when there is nerve problem.
Bellman Palsy is one. Bellman Palsy is caused mainly by emotional reaction and it pulls the muscle on the face to one side. And when the person relax again, the muscle relax. Interviewer: So the remedy in Bellman’s Palsy is to get into an unstressfull or relaxed state. In your situation would be to take one of these baths?
Dr. Sebi: That’s right! It’s not one of these baths, you take baths twice a day.
And then you take also the therapy; the internal therapy – which is what? The pavana, the gordocio negro, the cepress, and yes, my most favorite, the Drago! These are plants that you will never hear in the America standard pharmacopeia. You don’t even hear these herbs in the mouth of herbalists in Honduras or in the United States and for that matter even in Honduras, you go to Honduras and ask people the herbs I use – they don’t even know them. Because they too busy reading herbal books. And they not in the herbal books. And those that are in the herbal books are hybrid.
Dr. Sebi will simply remove the mucus and inflammation responsible for compromising the cellular structure and nerves. Banju, Bromide Plus Powder and the small cleansing packageis far more complimentary to the body than medical subscriptions for chemicals and surgery. The more Dr. Sebi succeeded in helping people get rid of all sorts of illnesses, the more it confirmed his selection for the use of specific herbs. All natural and non-hybrid plants rich in iron and potassium (Iron fluorine and Potassium phosphate) to combine with other tropical herbs in order to make compounds that our carbon-based mineral-body would be familiar with and therefore ready to assimilate. Disease often surfaces after years of consuming the most detrimental foods that we can find; thanks in part to food industry propaganda. The body can only repel substances that we put in our body for so long before the deprivation of nutrition creates an acid condition. Once we finally get some cell food in our system our health recovery is based on the simultaneous activity of two things:
1. Minerals – The replacement of our minerals that was stripped by the acid state.
2. Healthy Cells – The revitalizing of our cells which will contribute to the repair of damaged skin, nerves and organs.
ABOUT BELL’S PALSY
Bell’s Palsy.- also termed idiopathic facial paralysis (IFP).
Temporary for most people. The disorder or paralysis of the 7th cranial facial nerve (not related to stroke), which produces distortion on one side of the face. It is known to affect (pain & discomfort) only one of the paired facial nerves and one side of the face or head, however, in rare cases, it can affect both sides.
The cause of Bell’s Palsy is not clear. It is noted as an unexplained episode of facial muscle weakness and that damage to the nerve has been caused by inflammation. It most notably follows a systemic viral infection such as the common cold, herpes, varicella-zoster virus, Lyme disease, or the possibility of an autoimmune disease process.
The condition seems to occur more often in pregnant individuals and diabetics. Most instances of true Bell’s palsy last several days to months, but can sometimes result in permanent paralysis. It begins suddenly with a one-sided facial droop and worsens over 48 hours to 72 hours. Bell’s Palsy is chemically treated with a 10-day course of steroids. In some cases antiviral therapy may also be prescribed. For other procedures see VIDEO.
Many health problems can cause weakness or paralysis of the face (e.g. Stroke).
Facial weakness can be caused by strokes in many different locations in the brain and brain stem. Strokes involving the brain typically cause central facial weakness that involves the mouth and spares the eye and forehead. Strokes involving the brain stem can sometimes cause weakness of the mouth, eye and forehead.
Although both Bell’s palsy and acute stroke cause “acute” facial weakness, ischemic stroke is much more acute in onset, reaching maximum severity within seconds to minutes. Bell’s palsy reaches maximum severity within hours to a few days. Patients often don’t know the exact time of onset, but family members, co-workers, or other witnesses may have more information. It’s crucial to determine the time they were last seen normal when assessing onset, rather than the time they first noticed the deficit.
The House–Brackmann score is a score to grade the degree of nerve damage in a facial nerve palsy. The measurement is determined by measuring the upwards (superior) movement of the mid-portion of the top of the eyebrow, and the outwards (lateral) movement of the angle of the mouth. Each reference point scores 1 point for each 0.25 cm movement, up to a maximum of 1 cm. The scores are then added together, to give a number out of 8. The score predicts recovery in those with Bell’s palsy.
The score carries the name of the Dr John W. House and Dr Derald E. Brackmann, otolaryngologists in Los Angeles, California, who first described the system in 1985. It is one of a number of facial nerve scoring systems, such as Burres-Fisch, Nottingham, Sunnybrook, and Yanagihara. Of these, the Nottingham scale has been identified as possibly being easier and more reproducible. A modification of the original House–Brackmann score, called the “Facial Nerve Grading Scale 2.0” (FNGS2.0) was proposed in 2009. SEE VIDEO
Bell, Sir Charles. – Born at Edinburgh Scotland in November 1774. After he had passed through the usual course of preliminary schooling he embraced the profession of medicine and devoted himself chiefly to the study of anatomy, under the direction of his elder brother, John Bell, the anatomist. While he was still a pupil, he published in Edinburgh in 1798, his first work, entitled “A System of Dissections, explaining the anatomy of the Human Body, the manner of Displaying the parts, and their varieties in disease.” For many years this book was considered an excellent guide for the student in anatomy. In 1802 he published a series of engravings of original drawings showing the anatomy of the brain and nervous system. In 1804 he wrote the 3rd volume of “The Anatomy of the Human Body by John and Charles Bell;” this volume containing the anatomy of the nervous system and of the organs of special sense. Towards the end of the same year he left Edinburgh and settled in London. But before leaving Edinburgh he had written his work on the “Anatomy of Expression.” This book which was published in London shortly after his arrival in that city, attracted a good deal of attention. Seven years later in 1811 he published his “New Idea of the Anatomy of the Brain,” in which he announced the discovery of the different functions of the nerves corresponding with their relation to the different parts of that organ. In his larger work, “The Nervous System of the Human Body,” published in 1830, the results of his long continued and valuable researches in this comparatively new department of anatomy and physiology are set forth in more perfect detail.
Charles Bell’s reputation as a surgeon began in 1807 when he wrote a “System of Comparative Surgery” in which surgery is regarded almost wholly from an anatomical and operative point of view. This book at once placed him in the highest rank of English writers on surgery. In 1812 he was appointed surgeon to the Middlesex Hospital and he retained this post for 24 years. During this period he published a number of treaties and articles on surgical topics but it was not until 1839 or 1840 that he wrote his larger work, entitled “Institutes of Surgery.” In 1830 when William IV ascended the throne Charles Bell was Knighted. In 1836 he gave up his large practice in London and accepted the chair of surgery in the university of Edinburgh. His death occurred on April 28th, 1842. Bell’s paralysis and a number of other neurological eponyms were called after him.
Sir Charles Bell’s remarkable skills as an artist undoubtedly aided him very materially in attaining his great reputation as an anatomist, as a physiologist and as a surgeon; a reputation which appears to have been as great on the continent of Europe as throughout Great Britain and her colonies.

Water is necessary to flush the cells. Water that comes up out of the ground 90 degrees or above is naturally purified water. Distilled water has been on the rise in the last 20 years. Everybody seem to think that distilled water is better than just plain ole spring water. Distilled has a Ph of 7 which means it’s neutral but distilled water is not good to drink because it will rob you of your minerals. Spring water has the minerals. Spring water or thermal water – this is why thermal water was so high; cost so much, because it is filtered and purified by nature. So the best water is spring water. Any good spring water is good. The cleanest water in the world comes from Uruguay and Argentina South America. Other water that is the best water is Snow Water, Fiji Water, Perrier, Thermal water and Glacier Mountain water.
The Nile is polluted. The Nile been polluted for years. All the cites have been dumping their waste into Lake Victoria. The Egyptians have to purify the Nile. Purified water has a chemical in it. Nature didn’t make any water with chemicals. Using chemicals to purify water is no good. Carbon based filters is preferable, even if the water is tested at 7.6 pH then the water is still on the alkaline side and desirable.
Alkalinity is always good; providing that it is alkalinity that is produced by nature. The point that you should stop consuming alkaline water is at 9.6 pH. Never go into ten (10.0pH) A battery is alkaline which means that it is electrical but the alkalinity is at 14; it will burn you. Whenever you find an alkalinity at the range of 14, nature didn’t make it. Natural only makes alkalinity between the range of 9 and 9.6 pH. Alkaline water is natural spring water.
Carbon filters will aid in the removal of fluoride and leave the water at 7.6 pH. But it is better to consume natural spring water as long as we can find a clean spring.
Perrier water is noted for being naturally carbonated but all natural water will be noted for having minerals.
It’s dangerous because it has too much calcium in it. It will clog your kidneys. Your kidneys become a filter instead of the soil. You have to drink water on top of the soil. Nature has filtered it, now you drink it. But you go down, it’s dangerous.

Dr. Sebi recommends drinking a gallon of water a day while consuming the herbal compounds. Cellular life depends on hydration and a good supply of oxygen that it can get from water. Beware of dehydration, it happens much faster than you think.
But with these plants god made, in 1979 a woman came from Mexico that was insane for 11 years and she was cured. My friends thought that I was lying. Mr. Fredrick came and he was blind. He was blind for 11 years, he was seeing in two days. Oh I was lying again! When the young man came to me or I was called from Washington DC because there was someone that was suffering with AIDS and he was cured; and I was telling people in New York and in Washington, DC – you thought again that I was lying.
But since I was prepared for the world; LIES, I was shown that if I talk to you and you believe that this is a lie – well I am not the one that’s living the lie. It is YOU who disbelieve me, that live that lie.
So every time that I saw that thing in your eyes that shows that you thought that I was lying, don’t you ever believe that I was uncomfortable. Yes I were comfortable. Because I knew that you were living a lie and it was living that lie, ONLY because of disease. And that disease bring that doubt, in us. We have not trust in one another any more. So when truth appears, how are we gonna receive it?
Dr. Sebi has mentioned on several occasions how the brain is obstructed from spending the majority of our lives eating detrimental foods so much so that we can not THINK. Reasoning ability is lost and shamelessly placed behind the curtains and away from the consciousness necessary to receive a message conveyed. Motivation for self preservation is lost and impulse receives power over discipline to the point of giving in to bad habits. Chicken, white bread, cheese and butter then goes easily into the mouth. Next, the intestines become compromised as an acid condition develops and illnesses set it. Solutions are only acknowledged by our environment of convenience in combination with our food addictions in the driver seat heading for the hospital and chemical medications.
While in such a diseased condition, it is difficult to believe that you can reverse your illnesses as easy as Dr. Sebi has prescribed.
1. Stop eating detrimental foods.
2. Stay hydrated.
3. Use plant-based herbal compounds and teas for cleansing and nutrition.
His reason for how and why this is able to cure people of so many diseases is because he is only replenishing the body of its deprived carbon based minerals and electrical state. After being healed himself, Dr. Sebi finally recalls that this is an observation that his grandmother made, who was also a natural healer.
Very simple solutions that come from two people who never went to school will always serve as an example in modern-day times of who it will be difficult to trust; at least until we come together in healing.
In order to help and heal more people in a world that continues to grow, trust is needed more than ever. Not only has Dr. Sebi done his part which has earned him his reputation for curing people (not a reputation for researching or conning people), but he has passed the knowledge on and forward as you can see by the collection of information on this website. When people trust you, it is one of the most ultimate ways of presenting your credibility.
HERE ARE AT LEAST 4 THINGS PEOPLE LOOK FOR WHEN THEY WANT TO TRUST YOU
Did Dr. Sebi document his accomplishments? Yes he did.
FIVE ELEMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH DISTRUST
1. Negative expectations and a lack of confidence in the other party.
2. A sense of fear and anticipation of discomfort or danger.
3. The belief that one party may not care about the other’s welfare and may act harmfully.
4. Evoking a competitive (as opposed to cooperative) orientation that stimulates and exacerbates conflict.
5. No major media acknowledgement, no major educational/institutional acknowledgement.
When it came to healing, Dr. Sebi was a competent man. He was considered an arrogant individual for the confidence that could be seen when he presented information that devastated natural health platforms in a knowledge-intensive society. The goals of his passionate display was to get people to commit to themselves for the sake of getting healthier and preventing disease. Still people would entertain the fear of ending up in the hospital after either fasting or consuming Dr. Sebi’s compounds. Not only that but some people who where not able to receive either a good amount of information from Dr. Sebi or have answers from Dr. Sebi regarding significant questions of their own, would end up competing in order to discover some accomplishments of their own – most of the time relying on research from a variety of sources even if it contradicted the findings that Dr. Sebi would share with us. These things also contributed to the distrust that Dr. Sebi experienced. We can also count the refusal and denial of Dr. Sebi by an African president. I’m sure that I don’t have to mention how major media remained silent of his accomplishments which lead to keeping educational institutions and medical institutions from acknowledging Dr. Sebi and how this also lead to the distrust that Dr. Sebi experienced.
My final message is that you should not trust blindly, but you should avoid the paranoia of blind distrust.
It originated in the highlands of Peru, particularly the region around Lake Titicaca. Over 200 species of wild potato are found in the Americas, and they all developed from the red rose potato.
Dr. Sebi On The Red Rose Potato
Transcribed by Zee Malachi
I didn’t say the sweet potatoes was alright, that was made too. The red potato. The red rose, found in lake Titicaca in Peru. That is where the Irish people became acquainted and took it back to Ireland. Remember, the Irish people were the first to go to Peru. They did a lot of research in Peru. And they did a lot of things in Peru. And when they found this potato they took it back to Ireland and they begin to hybridize the potato and get what you call the russet potato, the red rose, but the natural potato look like the red rose. The red rose; I would recommend that you eat that because it’s the first generation away from the mother. From the base, which came from Lake Titicaca. But Not a sweet potato. A sweet potato has such a high concentration of nitrogen that it would really play havoc on the system.
Solanum Tuberosum (Red Potato) Names: Also known as “New Potatoes” when harvested early. Appearance: small to medium; round or slightly oblong; smooth, thin red skin; white flesh Texture: waxy, moist and smooth; creamy Flavor: subtly sweet; mild medium sugar content Preferred uses: steaming, boiling, mashing, salads, soups/stews Potato Variety 1 Potato Variety 2 Potato facts
Dr. Sebi has been able to recommend specific beans (garbanzo “aka” chic peas), rice (wild rice) and and potatoes (red rose) as the least detrimental foods for us to consume while we return to the African Bio Mineral balance. Depending on the state of our health, some of us don’t eat any of these at all as a contribution towards the effort to heal as quickly as possible.
The more people that become familiar with the food recommendations of Dr. Sebi, the more people start trying to acquire them and grow them. That being said, I’m sure you would like to know that the red rose potato is not as resistant to disease as modern-day potatoes. The genetic clone of the modern-day potato when bred, will inherit strengths and weaknesses of its parents. Diseases and macrobiotic strains are passed down to the point where there is nearly no chance in a million for them to grow without receiving a lot of sprays and fungicides.So we will definitely have a sharp eye on our suppliers for red rose potatoes where ever they are. We want to know what they are using to help the red potato grow.
ARE WE READY TO EAT’EM?
That depends on what it may take to turn us off and away from consuming the red rose potato. Green potatoes (red rose or not) are poisonous and should never be eaten. The green is a result of being exposed to light. Then we learn what happen soon after the red potato left Peru. It is reported that the German botanist Edward Pöppig (1798–1868) searched and discovered the “original” wild potato after traveling to Chile and Peru in 1827. By the time the Irish got their hands on the potato and continued to breed, they were hit with a potato famine in 1844. Nearly one-eight of the Irish population suffered by 1851 as one million of them were dead from starvation or disease. By 1855 two million people fled from Ireland.
Kind of makes you wonder, what in the heck did they do to that red rose potato? The answer is “NO!” – we are not ready to eat the Red Potato. What we have today is a version far from the one Dr. Sebi was recommending. But for those of you who will eat it anyway, below is some very important information for you.
Two things we look for. One we learn from Dr. Sebi (The starch content) and the other we learn from our chefs (toxic prevention). Lets start with what we learn from our chefs.
When we prepare any potato we should boil or steam only until we we reach a golden or light-brown color; NO DARKER! Cooking potatoes to a deep brown creates a compound called acrylamide, a “probable human carcinogen,” which in animal studies have been shown to cause cancer (in high levels). It’s the starch inside that reacts to the heat. Baking, grilling, and roasting can cause acrylamide to form, but frying produces the most. So french fries and potato chips are among the most toxic. Rinsing potatoes in water before any kind of cooking helps reduce acrylamide formation. Acrylamide can also be found in bread, cereal, coffee (because the beans are roasted), and other foods.
I guess it’s time to address frying foods now right? Acrylamide, turns up in foods (mostly starched-based ones) when they are fried, baked or otherwise cooked at high temperatures. It forms from sugars and an amino acid naturally found in food, as part of the Maillard Reaction (that’s the chemical reaction that transforms the flavor and color of food when cooked). So if you are going to fry foods, make sure that they are the least detrimental and as less the starch content as possible.
THE STARCH CONTENT
So lets jump right into the starch concerns. The red rose potato definitely has less starch than the russet potato. Red potato is considered a waxy potato because of its thin skin. A starchy potato is dry and mealy when baked. The flesh plumps up and breaks apart, sucking up any moisture that comes along. A starchy potato drinks in the juice of a luscious roast beef, or the butter and sour cream that is added. The red potato holds its shape after cooking and is not as absorbent.
As with most produce, look for potatoes with the skin intact and without bruising. They should be firm, not mushy. The papery skin on red and new potatoes might be flaky, and that’s okay.
HOW CAN I TELL HOW STARCHY IT IS?
Don’t know if your potato is starchy or waxy? Cut it in half. If there is a white, milky film on the knife and the halves stick to the knife, the potato contains a lot of starch. Lower starch potatoes don’t produce much white liquid, plus the halves slip off the knife easily.
THE POTATO FLOWER
Potato plants produce flowers during the end of their growing season. These turn into the true fruit of the plant, which resemble small green tomatoes. Potato plant flowering is a normal occurrence, but the flowers usually just dry up and fall off rather than producing fruit.
Potato plants are herbaceous perennials that grow about 60 cm (24 in) high, depending on variety, with the leaves dying back after flowering, fruiting and tuber formation. They bear white, pink, red, blue, or purple flowers with yellow stamens.
