Are potatoes seeds or roots?

It is true that a seed potato is not a seed, it is just a small potato. But if you plant it in the ground it will act just like a seed. It will grow roots and shoots, and the shoots will develop leaves, flowers and finally, seeds. Potatoes are wonderful plants.

Similarly one may ask, are potato seed pods poisonous?

Potato flowers and fruit are produced because this is how the plants multiply themselves, by seed. These potato fruit are not edible. More precisely, they are poisonous. They contain high amounts of solanine that can make the eater very ill.

What are Potato seeds called?

Like all parts of the plant except the tubers, the fruit contain the toxic alkaloid solanine and are therefore unsuitable for consumption. All new potato varieties are grown from seeds, also called "true potato seed", "TPS" or "botanical seed" to distinguish it from seed tubers.
