How long can corm vegetables - celeriac (celery root), turnips, and swedes (rutabagas) - be kept in a refrigerator? And should they be wrapped? I usually buy them wrapped in sealed plastic. If aiming to store them for as long as possible, should I leave it on, replace it with cloth or greaseproof paper, or perhaps store the vegetables unwrapped?


how long is long ?

They are fine for couple of weeks if stored in a cool place with good amount of humidity.

"These are dependent on ideal storage conditions of 32 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit and 95-percent humidity."

  • "How long is long?" I have changed "If aiming to store them for a long time" to "If aiming to store them for as long as possible". – ruffle May 1 '20 at 13:38
