Hi,

Does anyone know if the brown spots on the potatoes in the photo are potato scab or something else (and if so are they ok to eat)? Potatoes were left in sacks from last year and just harvested.

They will be fine to eat whatever the issue is, it could be scab, it could also be that something has damaged the skin as they grew and made a small hole. if you rub off the brown mark is it only skin deep or does it go further in.

Thank you - the mark is only skin deep
