Potatoes

When to pick

Pick after the flowers have appeared and before the stems wilt. Potatoes keep growing if left in the ground but will be more vulnerable to pests and diseases.


Eat and store fresh

Freshly harvested potatoes taste delicious, but do not store well. To store, leave them in the sun for a few hours to dry. Rub the excess mud off and store in a cool, dark place in a burlap sack for up to 6 months, or in a pit (clamp). Only store perfect potatoes.
