Картошка is uncountable, it always uses the singular form. It might help if you think of it as "some potato" rather than "a potato".
No reason, except it is a formal word people do not actually use in speech (it is something you would read on a price tag). We prefer to stick to картошка, which is what you can hear.
Does anyone else hear it like the Cinderella song? Золушка, Золушка, с утра до вечера, Золушка, "свари грибы", "и картошку", "мой посуду", "подметай"...
I'm pretty sure it's accepted. But if not, you can report it, because it's correct as well as "свари".
