Your citrus can be stored on the counter at room temperature for usually a few days, however this method speeds up the ripening. With citrus this special, we recommend storing them loose in the refrigerator crisper drawer away from apples to keep them fresher, for longer. If you juice your citrus, we recommend only storing for 1-2 days.
It is not recommended to freeze whole citrus fruits. However you can:
- Lay sections of fruit on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and flash freeze in the freezer for about an hour. Once frozen, store the sections in a freezer-safe, airtight container
- Put the peels in a resealable bag and freeze.
- Freeze the juice or zest in ice cube trays.
