Preserving Food Safely - 01600189


Before placing tubers in storage, they need to be cured
for ten days at 80 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, or between 65
and 70 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 to 3 weeks. The tubers
should be covered to keep the humidity elevated.

After curing the tubers are stored at 55 to 60 degrees
Fahrenheit. Chill injury will result if the temperature
is below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. To keep the humidity
high around tubers, they may be covered with, or put in
a burlap sack that is moistened periodically.
