  • Most root vegetables
  • Winter squashes (a.k.a. pumpkins, to those outside North America) (technically a fruit, but used as a vegetable). These last for longer, as well as being sweeter,[verification needed] if they are picked after the first frost.[verification needed]
  • Dried vegetables, including dried legumes. These can last in good condition for months. However attack from insects will generally reduce the quality over time, even if kept in airtight containers, as the eggs occur among the seeds.

In the right conditions - dark, cool (dry? not too moist, anyway) - these can last for weeks or months.
