Parsnips:
Topped parsnips can be kept for up to six months at 0ºC. Only good quality, healthy roots should be stored. Parsnip roots that have been bruised or cut during harvesting should not be considered for long term storage. Poor quality roots decay quickly and produce surface browning or yellowing as a result of oxidation. The biggest storage problem is to avoid wilting of the roots. Untapped parsnips have a very short storage life. It is possible to store fresh harvested parsnips in PEAKfresh bin liners that include ventilation holes in their base
Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
0ºC (32ºF) and 98% -100% relative humidity.
 
Packaging Method
Good quality parsnips that have been properly pre-cooled are packed dry into PEAKfresh carton liners folded closed at the top. The carton should have Ventilation holes but not necessarily be waxed. They can be stored into 1kg and 2kg bags for domestic and food service use. To avoid chill damage do not store parsnips below 1ºC (33ºF) for any length of time.
 
Storage Temperatures
