Ask the Produce Docs (Consumers)

Are my potatoes still edible if they are growing small leaves and I just cut them off at the spud?

Answer

When your potatoes begin to sprout in the cubbard, they are still eatable but may have lost some of their nutrients, and will be softer. If you are cooking them, you may not notice the difference.
