Storage tips: Remove the greens immediately, if they are still attached, as these draw moisture away from the roots. Don’t wash the carrots until you plan to use them, and store them in a plastic bag in the fridge. Carrots should last at least 10 days if stored this way.

Carrots can also be sliced or diced, blanched, and frozen in a plastic container to preserve them longer.”
