I feel its a very well written article, a lot of time and effort was put into it. --GorillazFanAdam 01:03, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Object: Please expand the lead, as per both WP:LEAD and WP:WIAFA (the former requires 2 paragraph lead, the latter requires it be a brief overview of the article). The article also lacks inline citations (critera 2(c), generally which are presented in the form of WP:FOOTNOTEs. "Distribution" is very short and should be either expanded or merged into another section. Try to avoid using personal pronouns- example: The ancestor of our cultivated potato change the our to the. Finally, the years without full dates should not be linked, per WP:CONTEXT (I'll take care of that). For an example of a FA, see Black pepper. (This article will also benefit from being placed first on peer review) Thanks, AndyZ t 01:21, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Object. I'd like to see more paper references in an article about a universal topic. Also, the lead is far too short and the writing is rather poor in places. —Eternal Equinox | talk 03:19, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
