When stored in the home, mature potatoes are optimally kept at room temperature , where they last 1 to 2 weeks in paper bag, in a dry, cool, dark, well ventilated location. If mature potatoes are refrigerated, dark spots can occur and conversion of starch into sugar can give rise to unpleasant sweet flavour when cooked.

Only new potatoes can be refrigerated, and should be kept so, where they have a shelf life of 1 week. If kept in too warm temperatures, both mature and new potatoes will sprout and shrivel. Exposure to light causes them to turn green. Also, potatoes absorb odours produced by pears.
