Produce 101 - Lemons and Limes

Picking the best
A easy rule in selecting citrus fruit is that they should feel firm and heavy for their size. Good color, shiny peel and a fresh appearance are also important. Avoid fruit that is misshapen or obviously damaged. Thinner-skinned fruits tend to be juicier than those with thicker skins.

Refrigerate limes and lemons up to three weeks. At room temperature and away from direct sunlight lemons and limes will last up to a week. When sliced they should be refrigerated immediately.
