How to store oranges

The best way to store oranges is to keep them in a cool, dry place, such as a pantry or a fruit bowl. Oranges can be stored at room temperature for a few days, but they will last longer if they are kept in the refrigerator. When storing oranges in the refrigerator, it's best to place them in the refrigerator's crisper drawer, which is designed to keep fruits and vegetables fresh for a longer period of time.

It's important to keep oranges away from ethylene-producing fruits, such as apples and bananas, as the ethylene gas can cause oranges to ripen faster.

If you have cut an orange and have leftover, it's best to wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or foil and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Oranges can also be stored in the freezer. They can be stored in airtight containers or resealable plastic bags for up to 8 months in the freezer, but they'll lose some of their texture and flavour when thawed. If you want to store orange juice, it's best to do it in the form of concentrate.

It's important to note that oranges that are not fully ripe when purchased will continue to ripen at room temperature, but if they are refrigerated they will not ripen further.
