The renowned potato of Kokos Tasos in Xylofagou has made its mark on the international stage, finding its way to Sweden. The potato, which served as the inspiration for the community leader, Kokos Tasos, has captured the attention of a journalist from Sweden, where a region also boasts a potato monument.

According to an article in Phileleftheros, the Swedish journalist sought out Kokos Tasos to discuss the significance of the Cypriot monument. The potato of Xylofagou has now become a trademark on Google Maps, garnering attention far beyond its local roots.
