Potatoes sprouting before harvesting
I have just cleared my maincrop potatoes (which might seen a bit early but here in the middle of France they are certainly ready by the end of August) The variety is Samba (which is not one I was familiar with) and they were planted during the second week of May. According to the very helpful fact sheet that the garden centre had on potatoes in general they should need 110-120 days so this week is about right for harvesting.
At least half the crop has sprouted, some tubers quite seriously. My question for any expert who can help is whether the fact that they have sprouted, even though we have removed the shoots, is likely to affect their storage quality and indeed whether they are still safe to eat.
