Extremely low temperatures persist in Eastern and Southern Idaho.
- Temperatures need to be 18°F or higher for five to seven hours to haul potatoes from cellars to packing sheds
- Growers do not ship potatoes to packing sheds when temperatures are below 18 degrees because that can cause internal and external bruising as well as black skins and flesh (located on the outer edges of potatoes and just under their skins)
- Expect reduced production and delayed loading; advanced order lead time is highly recommended for order fulfillment
- Many suppliers will utilize onsite storage to cover orders; size range may be limited
