Well, they can be harvested whenever one chooses, of course, but I have found that piece of advice to be correct.
just had a thought. Few and far between, so it made me reflect a minute. Here in Ireland we are really particular about our potatoes, and they must be as dry and floury as possible when cooked. With smiling skins, I.e split skins. The term "waxy" is a terrible insult. I'm not joking here. We don't like the look, feel or taste of waxy potatoes, even for potato salad! So, we leave them in the ground until they have flowered and the foliage dies down naturally.
anybody like to come in on this?
