philct, you have a potato that is going to make a seed pod!! You need to put something around it, maybe knee hi hose, to collect the seeds. Most potato plants do not make seeds.

Pretty! Remember, potatoes are member of the nightshade family and the fruit is poisonous.

Oh they are beautiful! There was a good discussion awhile back about potato seeds as opposed to seed potatoes! You may want to read it and congratulations!
