    Default Another potatoe question

    Never had this before, but this year, everyone I know had little tomato looking things growing towards the top of their potatoe plants. What are they...seeds? Can you dry them and plant them next spring?

    Default They are seed pods

    While folks rarely grow potatoes from seed, it is possible. If your potatoes produce seed it can be fun to save them and experiment. However, potatoes, especially hybrid varieties, will not reproduce true to type from seed so you never know what you will get. It's easier and more reliable to grow them from vegetative cuttings or "seed potatoes", which is the common practice. Most folks aren't even aware that potatoes are capable of producing seed, but a little web searching can provide information on the subject.
