The Q&A Archives: Potatoes

Question: We have yukon gold potatoes planted-they are doing great-but there are little green potatoes growing off the top of some of the branches-what does this mean?

Answer: When a potato plant develop flowers (and seed pods) that's an indication that it is beginning to develop tubers underground. You can harvest your Yukon Golds now (they will be small) or you can wait until the tops of the plants turn yellow and die down and then harvest them all at once. Enjoy!
