Depends on the variety.  Beauregard are ready in about 90-100 days.  Some other varieties take 120-150 days.  I wait until the vines start to die back or definitely before the first frost.

Thanks, that's a big help. The variety we ordered was not the one we got, we got the one that is in the grocery stores. I think it is about 100 days but I put mine in a greenhouse to shorten the time. I think around the 15th I will brush the soil back on one and see what I have. Do you get more than one potato per plant?

johnp, I sincerely hope we get more than one potato from each plant as I only planted one potato.

KJ, I think each plant is suppose to produce something like 4 or 5 potatoes. Even if there is only one, it will be very special. Very Happy

Thanks, sanderson.  I only planted this one potatoe as it rotting and I was going to throw it on the compost heap.  there was a green shoot so I took a chance and it has grown quite a nice bunch of leaves and covered maybe about four square feet.  Can't wait to see what is underneath, and maybe save some for replanting next  year.
