The short answer is NO. What you want to avoid in fresh potato storage is freezing. Thats why you dig them up in the fall. The old fasioned way is to put them in cool, dry sand in a dark place known as a root cellar. Carrots, onions and squash also do well with this treatment. Squash and mellons store well covered in straw.

You can make mashed potatoes and freeze them.  You also can blanch peeled potatoes that were cut into quarters...........and then ice bath to cool them fast........drain and bag and freeze.......also you can do them up like french fries and half fry them let them cook on paper towels and freeze them on a tray.....only good for 2 months in the freezer...then take them out and use a little olive oil in  a spray container and finish them in the oven until they are brown...........when we did them up we wipe them off and dry them on the porch and then put them in the fruit cellar.........we keep all the onions around them as the mice will eat them.

yes I froze about 2 dozen bags last summer,I use them for frenchfries and fried potatoes! I left the skin on them also my family loves them. you do have to put a little oil on your cookie sheet so the won't burn or stick though.
