I grow banana potatoes
every year and love them a lot. I boil them in the skins and when cooked just rub the skins off. Does anyone else grow them and how big do yours get - mine get to about 5 to 6 inches long with a diameter of 1.5 inches. I read some where that a potato
should be cut a day or 2 before planting and the meat of the potato
rubbed in potash to help them build op resistance to disease and scabbing.
Any one know how to reduce scabbing it will be my second year in this new garden that I tilled out of a great lawn... lol... I try to reduce the amount of organic matter and stuff that would hold moister and will be tilling in sand this year. When I plant
my spuds I make a trench 12 inches deep with the soil mounded on each side of the thence and as they grow push the soil over them…
