New Potatoes For Seed

Can I plant American Wonder potatoes for the first crop, and let enough

of them mature to use for seed for the second crop, to be planted the

first or middle of July?

It is possible to use potatoes grown the same year as seed for the later

crop, providing you let the potatoes mature first by the complete dying

down of the vines, and second by digging the potatoes allow them to lie

in the open air, with some protection against sun-burning, until the

potatoes become somewhat greenish. If this is the case the eyes will

develop and seed will grow, while without such treatment you might be

disappointed in their behavior. Of course, the question still remains

whether it would be desirable to do this or to plant some later variety

earlier in the season when the growing conditions would be better.
