When it comes to storing potatoes temperature should be managed around 45 to 50 degrees F. This will unable them to remain fresh for a longer period of time. But when they are stored below 40 degrees the starch begins to convert into sugar which in turn makes a potato sweet.

It is being said that potatoes stored in late winters and spring produce less starch when they are stored at a low temperature. But overall the component of starch is more when a potato is stored as it is converted afterwards into sugar due to different storage conditions.
