Micro Tray Code

If you’d like to know when your Micro Tray potatoes were packaged, take a look at the code on the white sticker that starts with 83. The six digits following the 83 is the date the potatoes were packaged.

Because these are fresh potatoes, how long they last will depend more on how they are stored. For this reason, many stores choose not to have an expiration date added to the packaging. As long as the potatoes are not really soft or breaking down, you should be good to go. Under proper storage conditions, the Micro Trays generally will last approximately 4-6 weeks from the date they were packaged.

For the best and longest storage possible, you’ll want to store your potatoes in a cool, dark place. The optimum storage is 45-55 degrees Fahrenheit, and potatoes store best in the dark. Keeping them this way should allow them to last for several weeks, depending on storage conditions. Storing them in the refrigerator allows the potatoes’ starches to break down into sugars, which may change the flavor of the potatoes, so if you must refrigerate them, use them up within a few weeks to get the best flavor possible!
