Brushed Potatoes are a cold weather crop. The best areas in Victoria for growing potatoes are around Ballarat, Geelong and Gippsland.
Potatoes are best stored in a cool, dark place. Avoid direct sunlight as this turns them green. Warm Moist conditions will encourage sprouting. Potatoes should be stored in brown paper bags or plastic with breathing holes. Store Potatoes away from strong smelling foods like onions.
