freepers are full of unknown knowledge that most people don't have...I grew my potatoes from the refrigerator...had a bunch of potato's that developed eyes and some had small sprouts on them...each eye and sprout was a potential potato plant. Some of the potato's had several eyes, cut them so that each eye has a piece of potato to feed the eye until the plant developers its root system..

.my neighbor always grew his from potato seeds.

I Got a bumper crop of potato's. But never have heard of the deadly nightshade being a close relative...thanks for the info. I hope it comes up in a conversation sometime so I can show my new knowledge..:O)

Part of the reason I am wondering is this year digging up taters, I found three small ones.

They were red on the skin, but long and shaped like the finger taters.

So they may actually have cross-pollinated by themselves and I might have a new species of taters that never existed before!

I’m not gonna eat them, I’m going to plant them to see if I can get a crop going!

I love gardening. Really, it’s fascinating. In a slow way, but still fascinating!
