Storage

Russian Banana Fingerling Potatoes should be kept cool and dry and dark. In their raw un-peeled form, Russian Banana Fingerling Potatoes will last 1-2 weeks at room temperature. They will last longer (months) in a cooler environment. 

If raw Russian Banana Fingerling Potatoes are kept in abundant light, or stored in very cold or very hot places they can develop high levels of toxic Solanin, a naturally occurring alkaloid. If the stored Russian Banana Fingerling Potatoes have areas of green discoloration, that is from SoIanin. The solanin can usually be removed by simply cutting out the green toxic areas.

If you have peeled your Russian Banana Fingerling Potatoes, they should be stored in water in the refrigerator where they can be held for up to 3 to 5 days.
