1. Do potato plants have fruit? I just harvested my first crop of
potatoes, and there are all these little green soft fruit on the ground
where the vines died back. If they are fruit, can they be planted and
become potato vines?
2. What is a good late season crop to plant in the bed where the potatoes
are no more? Or several late season crops :)
Yes! Oh, Yes! A hundred times yes. :)
Planting potato seed is a great way to select new varieties for your
specific area. You can select for instance: Cold Tolerance, Yield, Taste,
Color, etc. And it's also a lot of fun!

yes, they are fruits. I think if you plant them you will get plants
with small potatoes. Those, if used as seed potatoes, will give you
regular potatoes. But I am not sure and someone may correct me.
If you like greens, you have lots of choices. In the last 3 weeks I
planted tatsoi, arugula, lettuce, spinach, chicory, and kale. Pac
choi, broccoli rabe (rapini), mustard, would be good choices too. It
is getting a bit late to plant carrots, chard, peas or short season
cabbages (including broccoli), at least in SE MI.
