Storage Tips

Potatoes will live happily in a cool, dark airy environment. We suggest a paper bag, a cardboard or wooden box with newspaper or lid on the top. A basket is fine if it is lined with paper or cloth.


Do not store potatoes in a plastic bag or the refrigerator, as it deteriorates the quality and complicates the sugars and starches.

If a potato is green, it is best to discard. Potatoes that are sprouting are still fine to eat, just rub or peel away the sprout, it just means the potato is getting older or has been exposed to heat.
