Would you eat this potato?
Hi there. I just harvested a grow bag of potatoes and noticed that some of them have a brown scale on the surface. It seems it can be peeled off along with the skin, and the potato is still viable but I'd still like to know what it is and what causes it because we do prefer our potatoes with their skins on. I have no idea about any potato diseases, including the infamous potato blight. Thanks
PS - potato in photo was just semi-washed. Scale is quite dry & has no fluid content
