Right Way on Storing Sweet Potato

Sweet potatoes or kamote can last up to 2-3 months if harvested and stored properly.


1. When harvesting, use a container that can take only what is accommodated to avoid falling off and having bruises. It is in getting hurt that rotting of fruits begin.
2. Avoid using sacks for this reason.
3. The storage should be near the place of harvest or near the place of transport.
4. In places of storage, use bamboo, cogon grass or leaves of coconut as roof or walls.
