You are not going to grow them unless you live in mondulkiri.

There are University trials ongoing for 3 years now there.
Google it.
There is a full agronomic breakdown.

I know a foreigner here who has been growing potatoes on low land not far from the capital. I thought they only grew in cooler climates. Anyway, the problem is that they need a huge amount of fertilizer as the soil doesn't contain much in the way of nutrients.

The red volcanic soils of mondulkiri are ideal for spuds.
