Storing Sweet Potatoes

Storing sweet potatoes is much different than storing white potatoes. 
Sweet potatoes should be kept in a dark & dry location with a temperature of 55-65. 
Our sweet potatoes are 100% organic, therefore they will sprout if you allow them to store at 70-80 degrees(for an extended period of time). 
If they are stored in a refrigerator, they will only last a week or so. 

Best storage at home is to keep them in a cardboard box away from moisture in a pantry or mud room. If you leave them in the garage the temperature will change everyday and might cause them to break down or sprout faster. 

Sprouted Potatoes:
They are still ok to eat but the sugar content might have gone down because they are trying to feed the new sprout. 

Rotten Potato In With the Rest:
Remove the potato and dry off the remaining potatoes. The only issue here is if you only eat potatoes 1x per month and you don't check your supply often.
