    Are they dry brown with a  hole in the middle, or wet brown and rotten and  smelly?
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Brown patches in the middle are often water stress. We had the issue this year with outs. Potatoes look great on the outside but when cut they have a brown center, the center is otherwise normal, same firmness no slime etc. It's caused by dry spells and then water.

    There is a virus problem which causes brown stains in tubers. It is called Spraing.
