Storing Lemons and Limes
Lemons and limes should stay fresh for about a week at room temperature if kept out of bright sunlight. For ideal storage, place lemons and limes in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. They should keep for up to a month.

Storing Oranges, Grapefruits, and Pomelos
Oranges, grapefruits, and pomelos stay fresh at room temperature for about a week, and can be stored in the refrigerator crisper for up to 2 weeks. Take the chill off before digging in.

Storing Tangerines
Ideally, tangerines should be eaten soon after purchase, but they will keep in the refrigerator for 1 or 2 weeks.

Freezing Citrus Juice
To store the wonderfully tart juice of citrus fruits, squeeze them and pour into a plastic container, then freeze. Lemon and lime juice can be poured into ice cube trays. When frozen, the juice cubes can be stored for months in a plastic zip-top bag.
