What to Look For
Look for lemons with a bright, uniform yellow colour, free from blemishes. The skin should be firm, smooth, thin, and glossy with no shriveling.
Ripe lemons will have a pleasant aroma.
- 10°C - 12°C
- 90 - 95% Relative Humidity
At 10°C, yellow lemons can keep quality for around 4-6 weeks.
Storage under 10°C for over 3-4 weeks can result in chilling injury.
Keep lemons away from items with strong odors.
Response to Ethylene
Exposure to ethylene degreens the skin but can also accelerate decay and deterioration.
