FAQ
Question: 

Why are my potatoes beginning to sprout?

Answer: 

Potatoes should be stored at a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit and relative humidity of 90 to 95 percent.  Tubers often begin to sprout if storage temperatures are above 50 degrees F.  Also, don’t store potatoes with apples or other fruits.  Fruits produce ethylene gas.  Ethylene promotes sprouting of potatoes.
