Potatoes grow from plants. With lovely flowers. That prove the plant is ready to grow and make potatoes. I eat potatoes with their skin. Not only for their taste. But also for the extra vitamin c, calcium and magnesium the skins provide. However if you do not like them dressed. Please do peel them before you cook them in the nude
