Got home from work tonight and checked out the garden. Red potatoes are going to be the best I have ever raised. Unbelieveable for the poor start they had. The Yukon Gold planted at a later date did poor. Only a couple of plants out of several pounds of seed. Dug one of the plants and good large potatoes but the plant had little green tomato like fruits on it. Never seen that before or just didn't notice it. What are they?

some but not all varieties of potatoes will flower. of those that flower, some but not all will produce fruit, which is what you are describing.

potatoes propagated from tubers are genetically identical; the seeds found in the fruit will be the result of genetic recombination.

Those are potato berries. Not edible, not really good for anything.

that little green fruit is just a seed pod, save the seeds and plant them, they may grow potatoes from seed but may not be the same as what you dig.

I have lots of them on my Yukon Golds also this year. They are like clumps of grapes. Pics. were taken mid July.

Did you know potatoes and tomatoes, peppers, belladonna, tobacco, and petunias are all cousins, members of the Nightshade family?
