Best Ways To Store And Use Citrus Fruit

Best Storage

The fridge is the best place to store citrus fruit.

While you can keep citrus fruit on the counter, store it in the fridge to extend shelf life.

Ensure your fridge is set between 0 and 4°C.

Can I Freeze It?


All citrus fruit can be peeled, sliced and frozen, or juiced into ice cube trays and frozen for adding to drinks and cooking. If you freeze citrus fruit whole with the skins on, it will be easy to zest them with a grater when you want a pop of flavour later on.

Fresher For Longer

Keep your citrus fruit in the fridge and only bring to room temperature when you are ready to eat them.

Use It Up

If you’re juicing your citrus fruit, start by rolling the fruit on a hard surface with your hand. This makes the fruit easier to squeeze when cut so that you can get the most from them.

Did You Know?

Keeping citrus in a bowl of water in your fridge can help your fruits retain their moisture and freshness for a couple months.

You can also use citrus fruit peels to infuse water, which helps flush toxins, aids in digestion and boosts your immune system.
