Good day! Tell me, please, how many potatoes are in a bucket of 10 liters? How to buy potatoes: in nets or in buckets? Thanks in advance for your reply!
How many potatoes are in the bucket? A very important issue when purchasing this vegetable crop in large quantities. Potato is the most popular “stand-alone” product in our menu. It is also an indispensable component of a variety of dishes. This vegetable is the second bread, has many elements useful to the human body. One potato contains half the amino acids necessary for a person, as well as vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, organic acids, pectin, starch, fiber, etc.
If you do not have the opportunity to grow your potatoes, then you have to buy it. Now, many merchants pack potatoes in mesh bags and sell them by weight. Such a purchase is more profitable, because you pay each actual gram and know exactly the amount of your stock for the winter. Buying potatoes in a bucket, you can either overpay for a non-existent weight, or get a nice bonus, provided that the actual weight of the product is more than declared.
For example, a ten-liter bucket weighs an average of 6.5-7.5 kg. The value of this indicator is still affected by the fullness of the tank: with or without a slide. An important point is the size of the tubers. Big potatoes fit less. Small potatoes more densely fill the empty space in the container, thus, its weight will be more.
