A Daily Apple Prevents Potato Rot

We’ve all heard the proverb “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but did you know that keeping an apple in a bag with your potatoes will prevent them from sprouting and spoiling? In a unique way, apples’ release of ethylene prevents potatoes from sprouting. Onions, however, have the opposite effect, so be careful not to keep any around.Potatoes can spoil earlier as a result of light and moisture. Therefore, the best option for storing them is in a paper bag that has been loosely packed or a dry cabinet that has one apple in it.
