I think there can be a dormancy issue, but a few weeks in refrigeration should break it.  Not sure of the time needed however!  We will be using seed from our spring planted potato harvest to plant our high tunnel potatoes in late August.  Usually gives us a nice harvest in December.

   Has anyone double cropped potatoes? Ie taken the first crop and planted them into new hills. I have a vague memory of dormancy being an issue.

  We are going to be short of a specialty spud that we are considering re  planting in the high tunnel using the 'starts' from our early crop that are now ready. Ideas. Comments.
