New or early-term potatoes do not belong in Zembag!
Remember, new or early-term potatoes are not meant to be stored, not even in Zembag! These potatoes do not have a developed skin, making them very susceptible to mold and rot. In addition, caraway essential oil damages them. By law, they must be labelled as 'new' and 'early-term'. Only mature late-season potatoes belong into Zembag.
