      Hello Anita,

      It’s singular Genitive. When talking about potatoes as harvest or in general, we consider it uncountable, so the singular form is used.

      If you are talking about potapoes as pieces, you should use plural (у нас осталось пять картошек).

      • Thanks. What is the difference between карто́фель and карто́шка? Does the usage rule mentioned above apply to карто́фель as well?

        • Learn Russian Words says:

          Картофель is the official name of the crop. Картошка is how we call it most of the times, colloquial.

          Картофель is always singular, uncountable. To make it countable, we add a siffix: картофелина. Then it becomes colloquial too.

          – У нас осталось пять картошек / картофелин.
          We have five potatoes left.

          – Мы собрали 50 ведер картофеля / картошки.
          We have harvested 50 buckets of potatoes.
