The Potato village Fitjar
You probably know that there is a lot of different potato types. However, the variety we like best here in Fitjar are large, white potatoes that are tender and flavorful. This variety has a great name, but here in Fitjar we call them White English Potatoes, or preferably we say Fitjar potatoes.
Did you know that the different potato varieties have very different flowers, and some of them are so beautiful that they can be planted in a pot, as an ornamental plant?
The green village Fitjar
The word Fitjar means "the green meadow by the sea". And most part of the year, the village is green. The soil is fertile, which people have known since the Stone Age.
In more recent time, we are particularly proud that Sunnhordland has been label "Sustainable Travel Destination". So we are green in more ways than one!
