That will usually be when the tops die off, however I can never resist poking around earlier and eating the new baby potatoes. Few make it to maturity around here!

I have grown potatoes too, and you do have to wait till the potatoes tops die off. I have a few baby ones now, but in a few weeks, they should be ready, give or take a week or two! Hope this helps!!

You Have to dig the biggest potato plants to check for ready potatoes.
