    I wish I'd kept my potato fruits now... I chucked em after the posts that warned about how poisonous they were and before the posts about growing from them - doh!

    I'm going to have to try this if I ever get any potato fruits. Not that this ever happens

    Oh well. Thanks for the great information anyway.

    I've carefully searched all my spuds this year for fruits - not a thing. Some kind grapes have sent me some. Then, I found a 'volunteer' spud hiding amongst the parsnips. It has seeds on!

    There'll be lots of us at it next year, won't there?

    You can count me in on the experiement too - I have a 'volunteer' Picasso plant which somehow evaded digging up last year - one nice big seed pod which is now ripening on the window ledge at home.

    Well done and a good result, but I think I will stick with the traditional method and use tubers.

    Hi

    What a wonderful thread - I missed this one whilst I was away.

    Flummery - I am still planning on saving you some of mine; if you have enough just let me know. After this I'm going to keep the rest and try this method myself with the rest anyway.
