I grew some tasty pink-fleshed potatoes last summer, and I was hoping to save some of the smaller tubers to replant this spring. Unfortunately, they decided to get a jump-start on the season and start growing a little early:
I kept them in a dark cupboard in my kitchen, but potatoes prefer a cooler location than that. Ideally, they should be stored at a cool temperature, between 6 and 15 degrees Celsius or so, and with a high relative humidity. Storing them in a perforated plastic bag, like they come in at the grocery store, can help to maintain humidity around the potatoes while still allowing them to breathe. A cool, dark place in an unheated part of the basement may have been more successful. Unfortunately, I won't be able to try this variety again this summer because of my storage failure.
