I have seed potatoes that are heavily sprouting in February. We plant them at the end of May, beginning of June in our zone. Can I knock off the sprouts now, and will they be good and re-sprout for our planting time?
I’m assuming these seed potatoes are for personal use. Unfortunately, your heavily sprouting seed potatoes will likely not survive until late May. Once the sprouting has started, these tend to draw valuable moisture and needed nutrients to the sprouts, leaving the core of the potato shriveled and dehydrated. You’re better off looking for another batch of seed potatoes prior to your planting period, perhaps two or three weeks out to ensure you can find what you need.
