@KariSamuel it's where you prepare the potatoes for planting by leaving them to start to sprout in egg tray in a light, frost free space. Gives them a head start before planting

@KariSamuel consider them chitted. They'll be ready to go when the soil warms up

Hi @gerpsych. I have absolutely no idea yet but told they're very tasty. They look like they should taste like a sweet of some sort
