Okay this is probably going to sound dumb, but I have never planted these so need help

You know when the eyes of the potatoes begin to grow, can these be cut off and planted into the ground, just like one is planting any seed?

I have quite a few on my potatoes and wondered would these really grow in the ground?

thanks much

That is a good question. It really depends on the potato. Lots of the vegetables that we purchase from teh store are 'sterile' In other words, they do not reproduce.

When purchasing seeds, you need to watch for the same thing. Now, if you do not harvest the seeds from your vegetables..then it won't matter.

BUT if you are like me and do harvest the seeds of your best plants and use them the following year; it is essential that you make sure you have the right ones.

Be careful with potatoes because they do harvest LOTS of diseases and you need to watch what you put in the ground because you can taint the soil permanently.

I also buy my potatoes for planting from a reputatble and trustworthy company.

Hope this helps.

So basically..yes you can plant them if they start to root..and then just hope they do come up! :chatterbox:
