How do I select a potato?

Selecting Potatoes

When selecting potatoes, no matter which variety, look for ones that are firm and free of any kind of soft spots. Avoid any potatoes that are sprouting, shriveled, wrinkled, or have a huge area of green skin. The green skin can be mildly toxic, but if it only covers a small area can be peeled away and the rest of the potato eaten.
