About Seed Potatoes: Seed potatoes produce potatoes that are an exact clone of the mother seed potato. Seed potatoes are not the same as true potato seeds, which are seeds harvested from the berries of potato plants.

When sprouts appear after 14-20 days, add 3 inches of soil.  Repeat until soil mound is 5 inches above ground. Maintain even moisture by watering 1-2 inches of water per week. Potatoes are ready to harvest when tops of plants have died completely.
