Wintering Sweet Potatoes


l591fletcher added on November 25, 2016 | Answered

I dug up a good harvest of sweet potatoes 2 weeks ago, and without cleaning them off, set them into the garage in buckets until I had time to process them. Is it too late to 'cure' them with 80 degree temps (as recommended when they are first dug up)?

I think it is fine to cure them now- the process should still help them develop the sugar-producing enzymes. Make sure none of them have any rotten parts, though- those ones should be separated from the others.
