all my potatoes are covered with blemishes and are misshapen, will they be o.k. to eat and what has caused this. all types are affected but the redskin ones more than others?



Just google potato scab for all the info you need.

normal potatoes are misshapen only the supermarkets like to sell uniform shape the tonnage they reject must be enormous /scab on potatoes just peel as normal /harmless

I agree Snoopdog as I end up with most odd looking pots when peeled.

....and not just odd looking potatoes that the supermarkets throw out....have you ever grown a perfect cucumber like you can buy in supermarkets ?....I havn´t, mine have most weird shapes at times.

Sorry to go off-topic about potatoes.
