Abstract The present invention relates to a method for modifying the tuber shape of a potato (Solanum tuberosum) plant comprising genetically engineering the presence or absence or functional activity 5 of the StOFP20 gene. The tuber shape of a potato plant is modified from round to elongate by deletion or inactivation of a functional StOF P20 gene present in the genome of a plant that produces round potatoes to become absent or non-functional. The present invention further relates to a method for modifying the tuber shape of a potato (Solanum tuberosum) plant comprising crossing a potato plant comprising a functional StOF P20 gene With a potato plant lacking a 10 functional StOF P20 gene and subsequently selecting from the F2 progeny of the cross a plant With the desired tuber shape.
