Can I plant sprouted potatoes?
I'm getting a late start on planting potatoes this year, but I was still surprised to discover my seed potatoes are full of white, 8" sprouts. I kept them in a closed paper bag in a cool basement, but I did purchase them about a month ago. The potatoes themselves are soft and wrinkled, but show no signs of disease.
I've heard of sprouting potatoes in light for short, green sprouts, but never anything about planting spindly white sprouts. Can these still be planted successfully?
