reserve materials from the vines are
almost wholly deposited as starch. Im
mediately after the roots are harvest
ed, there occurs a rapid transforma
tion of starch into sugar. This trans
formation seems to be due to internal
causes, and is largely independent of
external conditions. In sweet po
tatoes stored at a temperature of from
515 to t'.2 F the moisture remains fair
ly constant. There is a gradual dis
appearance of starch during the first
of the season (October to March" and
probably a re-formation of starch ac
companied by a disappearance of cane
sugar during the latter part of the
season (March to June). The chances
in starch and cane sugar appear in a
general way to correspond with the
seasonal changes in the temperature
In sweet potatoes kept in cold storag'
(39.2 F.), there is a rapid disappear
ance of the starch and an accompany
ing increase in cane sugar. These
chances do not attain a state of
equilibrium at that temperature, as
the sweet potatoes invariably rot bv
the action of fungi before the chances
have reached their maximum. I' may
seem like a matter of minor import M
ascertain why sweet potatoes are
sweet and what constitutes a really
ripe banana. In these days when the
limitations of the seasons are no long
er allowed to set restrictions on tho
food demands of mankind, and when
questions of effective economical
methods of transportation and storage
are seriously studied, it becomes es
