(SOLVED!) How Do You Grow Potatoes In Texas?

Seed Potatoes Potato pieces about 2 Oz. Large seed potatoes can have 2 to 3 eyes. Smaller seed potatoes may be cut one or two times depending on their eyes and weight. Cut large tubers into block‐shaped, 2 to 2 1/2-ounce seed pieces making sure that each piece has 2 to 3 eyes (small indentations in the skin). Cuttings of approximately 2 ounces or less are best as smaller potatoes seeds might not have sufficient energy reserves to sustain growth. It is not a good idea to use potato slices larger than 2 oz. Suckers can form in two weeks from frozen sprouts that have been damaged below the freeze limit (damaged region of sprout) 😎😊
Eventually, you’ll see that the eyes produce long sprouts. If they’re 3/4 to 1 inch long, that’s perfect. Large potatoes should be cut so they are at least as big as a golf ball. So, you can buy just very small Plant potatoes whole and leave them alone. If they are too large, you can cut them into pieces and add a sprout to each. After they have dried, you can callous them. Next, dust the surfaces with dusting sulfur (not soil-sulphur). You can then tap the top and shake off any extra. Let that dry another day or so and then it’s ready to plant.

Kylee Enriquez at growingintexas.com More information is available. This is the first step. Planting potatoes in Texas is to source high quality seed potatoes. They are similar to the potato you’d see in the grocery store except that they have been certified free of disease and aren’t treated with growth inhibitors. Planting certified disease free potatoes is important so you don’t introduce something to your garden It is best to avoid soil with a high pH. Producer’s Co-op, Bryan is my preferred place to buy potatoes. However, if you are looking for unique varieties or more variety options I can order them from PotatoGarden.com. Their shipping times vary depending on the season. Although some websites have great variety, they tend to send them too late for Texas residents.

Texas has many regions that are major producers of potatoes. Large commercial acreage is grown in four areas: The High Plains – Panhandle, extending from Seminole northward to Dalhart; the Rolling Plains – Munday; the Upper Coast – Winter Garden; and the Rio Grande Valley.
