To keep taro root fresh and maintain a high quality, it's important to store it properly. Here's what you need to know:

  1. Temperature: Keep taro root in a cool spot, ideally between 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit (10 to 13 degrees Celsius). Avoid extreme temperatures, as they can lead to spoilage.
  2. Humidity: Taro root prefers humidity levels of 75% to 85%. Store it where there's enough moisture to prevent drying out. You can use a damp cloth or paper towel to maintain humidity if needed.
  3. Air Circulation: Good airflow is essential to prevent moisture buildup and mold growth. Ensure the storage area is well-ventilated and avoid tightly sealing the taro root to allow for airflow.
  4. Light Exposure: Store taro root in a dark place, as exposure to light can cause it to deteriorate faster. A cool, dark pantry or cabinet is ideal for taro root storage.
