Planting Info: Fertilize at planting time. Sprinkle a tablespoon of 10-10-10 fertilizer in the space between each potato piece. Do not apply the fertilizer directly to the potatoes as it can burn the tubers.
After plants are 8 - 10 inches tall, use a hoe and pile several inches of soil up around the stems. This prevents exposure to the sun which causes tubers to become green and inedible. Harvest after tops turn yellow. Can be stored at 40 - 50 degrees F.
