It is useful to know how many potato tubers will be produced by one seed potato when calculating how many seed potatoes to plant in the vegetable garden.
The number of potatoes produced by each seed potato varies according to:
number of chits
early or maincrop
growing conditions etc…
The new potatoes, in the photo above, all came from one root.
Any number of new potatoes, from 2 – 10, can be produced from one seed potato. But most vegetable gardeners would expect at least 6 and preferably 8 -10 new potatoes from each seed tuber planted in the vegetable garden!
