Hi, some of the potaoes we planted in the spring have come up above ground & look green- are they edible?
I’m growing potatoes from eyes of an organic potato my father in law left. The leaves have browned and dried out and we dug up one and there are roots but no signs of any potato forming. Why? I’m growing these for my 90yr old grandma and I hope the plants take!
I live in southern California but water them daily.
Its so important to grow the right variety of potato for whatever you like to eat at home… Here are my recommendations http://bit.ly/1dsefZN

this is a common misconception:
>> “plant your seed potato pieces with the remaining shoots pointed upward, toward the surface of the soil”
like most plants, potatoes respond to gravity, and the shoots will grow to the surface whatever their orientation underground…..but roots also grow from those eyes and by planting them on the top, it makes the potato plants more susceptible to drought…unless you are planting in heavy wet soil, you should point your eyes downward, or else plant your seed an inch deeper; shoots from which new tubers grow will form on that stem from the eye to the surface of the soil..
