I recently (June '11) bought a couple of nice chocos to plant next summer. How do I store these without them going rotten? Do they need to be stored in the dark or can they be kept in a basket in my shed?

I aquired a choko about 8 weeks ago with the shoot coming out already - planted it in a pot, full sun, and now it is an 8 inch vine. May be a bit cool for it but seems to be working.
