Potatoes can be harvested with a garden spade, a hoe, a potato harvester or a potato lifting fork. The latter has 3 to 4 wide and flat or, in cross section, triangular teeth with pointed ends (approx. 20-30 cm long), which are attached to a wooden T or D handle (approx. 1 m) .
To scoop potatoes, a potato fork is used, the teeth of which are much closer together and end in balls so as not to damage the potatoes.
Can be distinguished from the digging fork.
See also dung fork. [MOT]
