How do I store carrots long term in my basement? Do I need to cover them with anything?
Carrots should be stored with their tops removed in a cold (32°F) and humid (98-100% relative humidity) storage condition. In order to achieve high humidity, you will probably need to store your carrots in a plastic bag. For more information about proper storage conditions, check out Bulletin #4135, Storage Conditions: Fruits and Vegetables, and this video about Preserving the Maine Harvest: Winter Storage. Additional resources mentioned in the video can be found on the UMaine Extension Food & Health website.
