I harvested some potatoes in a bucket today. they are red potatoes. They have all these dark little spots/bumps on the skin.

The inner part of the potato seems firm and does not have any blemishes.

Is there anything wrong with this potato? Is it safe to eat?

That is a mighty small picture but they look good to me. I do not see why not. If you do not like the look of the skin and its blemishes, just peel and eat that way. If the flesh looks normal, why not?

I enlarged the pic to take a look and they look great to me! I would peel them up and eat!

A type of blight? Should be able to find lots of info on line or call your local extension service.
