Storage - Store potatoes in a cool humid place and keep them away from light. Sunlight or fluorescent light can cause the potato skin to produce chlorophyll and turn green in colour. Do not store potatoes in the fridge as the cold temperature turns the potato starch into sugar. Do not store them in plastic bags as potatoes need to breathe.
