    Since almost all vegetables are hybrids, the seeds are almost always sterile, or if they do germinate they grow into one of the varieties used to make the hybrid, and are rarely desireable.

    Potatoes are almost always grown from "seed potatoes", the small thumb-sized ones that are too small to be sold for food. However, if you have a large potato with several eyes, it can be cut into chunks with an eye each and planted.

    Look for full instructions in google.

    A note on potato safety: potatoes can generate a chemicle called solanine that is very poisonous. The fruit that comes from the flowers is deadly, and the seeds contain solanine as well. Don't let pets get to them.

    When potatoes turn greenish, that green layer under the skin is generating solanine, and the potato should not be eaten, although it can be used for replanting. Several people each year are poisoned by eating "green" potatoes.
