Disclaimer: These Potatoes Are Sprouting!
A note from our potato expert about planting...
Will my potatoes grow if they are soft?
Potatoes can take a small amount of dehydration/softness and still be fine to grow. We've planted soft potatoes on occasion and always had success. The only time we have had soft potatoes fail is when they were planted in hot soil - it couldn't take the stress. The soft potatoes will grow weaker with time.
Will they produce weaker or smaller plants?
No. Once the potato has roots and a plant, it will continue to grow as normal. It doesn't need the tuber anymore. What could happen is a stress factor that shuts down the sprouting process because the tuber is weaker than normal. Then you wouldn't get any plants at all. But if you do get plants, keep them happily growing. They will produce a full crop!
What if the sprouts have broken off in transit?
The sprouts will grow back again. Sometimes you'll get more stems when the new sprouts grow back, which is a good thing!
The most popular "red" potato in Europe. Round to oblong tubers, satin-like pinkish/red skin and gourmet quality creamy-yellow flesh. Prolific yields of excellent all-around cooking potatoes. Very resistant to common diseases. An easy and very reliable gourmet potato to grow.
