Re: Blooming potatos

Irish type? Red or white? How long befour you will dig the
potatoes? Bill Bradshaw Cherokee Co. Texas USA
Re: Blooming potatos
Hi Bill,

thank you for intersting in my pictures. This potato is the
varity "Agria" and it is growed for eating. He is round/oval
has flad eyes and a very yellow inside. The meals of it look
very appetizing because of the color. He has a brown peel
but excuse me I can´t answere if Irish or not, this
classification is not usual in Gemany.

They where planted at the middle of April and will be ready
for digging in the middle of September.

Greetings to Texas
Re: Blooming potatos
Theo, In our area potatoes are Irish type (red or white
skined) Our other potato is the sweet potato. We grow both.
Our (Irish) potatoes have purple blooms, rather than the
white blooms yours have. That is the reason I was asking.

Re: Blooming potatos
Hi Bill,

I think we are growing your Irish type. A few red one like
Desireé or white sined like in my picture. Meals from
potatos are very traditionl her in Bavaria and in former
times this where called starvation-meals and they where
eated the whole week.

This meals were called like finger noodles, bridge-cudgel,
mouth-backs ...., and potato salat of course. Mostly the
dough is made from cooked or raw potatos with flour and eggs
and it baked, not fryrted in schmaltz. So you can see this
where meals for hard working people, but they tasting also
today with a little guilty conscience maibe!

Beside we are growing also potatos for starch processing but
no sweet one!
