A diagram showing how potatoes grow

My red potatoes are now a good size and I am digging some up now.

However, I am finding that the new potato is sprouting with smaller potatoes
from the large new potato.

Is this normal?



Hi Roman, I have uploaded a diagram above for you showing the structure of the potato plant and how potatoes grow under normal conditions. I hope this help in answering your question.

If your potatoes are growing according to the diagram, then you shouldn't have any problems.

However, if your potatoes are not growing according to the diagram perhaps you would like to submit a photo of your own showing us the problem so that we can try and help you further.
