The temperature of the potatoes reaches 1°C after about 6 hours at this temperature.

Transferring potatoes, peas and strawberry leaves from 10 to 1° C produced initial increases in the contents of glucose-6-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate and, in some experiments, the amounts of fructose diphosphate and of dihydroxyacetonephosphate. In contrast the contents of 3-phosphoglycerate and of phosphoenolpyruvate decreased at 1° C. The above changes in phosphate esters appeared not to affect the rate of respiration.
