  1. Potatoes should be firm, well-shaped and relatively smooth, and should be free of decay that often manifests as wet or dry rot. 
  2. Avoid potatoes with soft spots or blemishes and those with a greenish tint.
  3. In addition, they should not be sprouting or have green coloration since this indicates that they may be undesirable in taste. 
  4. Sometimes stores will offer already cleaned potatoes. These should be avoided since when their protective coating is removed by washing, potatoes are more vulnerable to bacteria.
