When are charlotte potatoes not charlotte potatoes?
I listened to Doctorbob and dug up my potatoes. Only to find they had changed colour!!!! Charlotte potatoes are meant to be white right? most of mine are pink!!!! The seed potsatoe were brought from a repitatble company. It said Charlotte potaotes on the bag and this is what I got!! Any one got any ideas? They look more like desiree potatoes to me. They were white seed potaotes before I planted them. This is a mistery to me

On plant Charlotte potatoes




I saw this question and answered it, I probably forgot to press submit again! (I do this quite often you know! Lol)
What ever they are they certainly haven't been in the ground long enough. Even reputable companies can get it wrong now and again.

I'm sorry you had to ask about your question again!
