To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

Actually, according to my horticulture professor, putting an apple in with potatoes speeds up the sprouting because apples give off ethylene gas that encourages sprouting.

Hummm, well guess the professor would know. I stand corrected! Ok, new tip of the day....Don't put an apple in with pototoes, they will sprout!

Store potatoes in refrigerator. Delays the sprouting process.
