Seed potatoes are tubers used to plant potatoes. You can grow a colorful array of tasty taters by planting seed potatoes. Always grow from certified disease-free seed potatoes for the most productive and healthiest plants. Over 4000 varieties of potatoes are grown worldwide, and roughly 200 are available in US grocery stores. This amazing crop dates back to South America, with the earliest discovered tuber remains dating back to 2500 BC. Did you know that potatoes have more potassium than bananas? They are also a good source of vitamins C and B6, zinc, and iron. Not too shabby for a humble spud! While you can develop new potatoes from the eyes of any potato, consider that store-bought potatoes from the supermarket may be treated with chemicals like sprout inhibitors and may harbor pathogens that can spread to your garden soil. Instead, grow untreated, rare, specialty, and heirloom favorites by planting certified disease-free seed potatoes in your garden. Potatoes fit into seven categories: russet, red, white, yellow, blue/purple, fingerling, and petite. They can be boiled, baked, roasted, steamed, grilled, pan-fried, sautéed, frozen, or stored in a cool, dark place with good ventilation for a long-lasting harvest. Plant seed potatoes in your garden each season to stock your pantry with this essential and nutritious vegetable.
