Are there "Identical Twin" plants?

Just had a thought on this potato question.  Although I'm not set up to do it in
our greenhouse, somebody out there probably has a hydroponics system in a growth
chamber in which potato plants could be grown.  Would the potatoes they produced
be identical or roughly identical in shape, color, texture, etc?  Would they be
round instead of oblong?  Would the eyes be in the same places?  Same starch
content?
Just a thought since I've never seen it done and wondered if it might come close
to answering George's question experimentally.
