The youngsters from more than 10 primary and nursery schools across the city planted the potatoes at the Botanic Gardens.
The garden was developed as an educational facility for city schools and is helping many youngsters to plant, grow and harvest their own food.
It is also helping Glasgow's young people to get hands-on experience of food growing.
All the pupils were given early cropping seeds and spring flowers to take back to their schools to plant.
A decade ago the Children's Garden committee raised funds and the Children's Garden was built.
The committee has also developed a heritage Children's Orchard with many apple and soft fruit varieties.
John Hancox, chairman of the Children's Garden, said: " We have always felt that it was important that children got to experience planting their own food - and also harvesting it.
"One of the challenges facing school gardens is to get crops in and harvested before the summer holidays and we are experimenting with early potatoes and other quick-growing crops such as radish, carrot and various salads."
