Potato plants will flower and form large green seed capsules, indicating they are beginning to develop tubers. When they're finished flowering, you can dig small 'new' potatoes. If you want fully mature potatoes, wait until the tops turn yellow and die down. Then carefully dig your potatoes for storage.
