Southwest Colorado wildflowers, July 2014.
It took my brain some time to unlock what I was seeing.

This is the first time I’ve ever seen berries form on my potato plants. They look like unripened cherry tomatoes, but make no mistake they are extremely toxic and should never be consumed. These berries hold the TRUE seeds of the potato; the chits/seed potatoes we plant are simply clones. If you are looking to develop a new hybrid of potatoes, the seeds in these berries are what to plant. It’s no small task to grow from seed; apparently, it can take two years to get a real crop. You might notice that it’s uncommon to find potato berries. I think that’s because most of the potatoes we consume are species that has bred out the ability to form berries. They say keeping these berries could negatively affect the production volume of the crop so it makes sense to remove them.
