I am a first time vegetable gardener. have a question re: potatoes - growing on the foliage are what looks like small green tomatoes - what are they and is it normal?



Seed of the plant, ripens to llook like a tomato, deadly poisonous, do not eat. We cut them off to save the plant wasting energy on producing seeds.

Owdboggy is right. In fact, potatos are in the same family as tomatoes and deadly nightshade - ie the Solanum family. That's why they look so familier!
