Harvest Main Crop Potatoes

When you have lifted your Main Crop Potatoes allow them to dry on the soil surface for three to four hours to ‘set’ the skins and prevent bruising once you have lifted them.

Check your crop and ensure you only store sound tubers. Any that are damaged should be used first.

It is best to store potatoes in Hessian Sacks as these allow air to circulate and prevent sweating them in a cool, dark place such as a shed or outhouse.
