Store your citrus correctly. Fresh Florida citrus lasts much
longer if it is refrigerated or stored in a cool, dry place.
If refrigerated, oranges should be kept at 35 degrees to 50 degrees.
Grapefruit will last longer at a temperature of 45 degrees to 48
Don't worry about the green. Often the Florida Citrus you will
see will have a greenish tint in the peel. However, this does
not mean that it is not ripe. Florida citrus is never picked
until it is perfectly ripe. The greenish color can be caused
in one of two ways. It may happen because we have not had the
warm days and cool nights the fruit needs to develop it deep orange
or yellow color. Or it may be due to a natural "regreening"
process which happens in the spring when the trees blossom.
But despite the greenish skin tint, the fruit continues to mature
and is still luscious and delicious on the inside.
