Potato was first grown in Egypt  then moved to Europe.

Potato was one of the few crops that originated in the Americas and was then transferred to Europe.  Tomatoes, tobacco, corn, and some others were also introduced into Europe, subsequently spreading to Africa and Asia.  Wheat was introduced in the Egypt/southwest Asian region and then spread worldwide, if not by cultivation then at least by consumption.
