Last winter I found a purple potato in a bag I got from a food pantry. I saved it and planted it in the spring, so now I have a whole bunch of purple potatoes. How do I store some of them for next year's planting? I am really enjoying the taste of these and want more next year!
Storing purple potatoes, or potatoes in general?
You need an area that is dark and cold, but not freezing... prior to the days of concrete basements, houses used to have basements that were ideal for this! This was the idea of a root cellar too (though I have no experience with one of these).
Potatoes, just like cabbages and apples, need to be stored "Cold and Moist" (32-40ºF and 80-90% Relative Humidity)
