Storage & Handling

Backroom Storage – proper storage is essential for maintaining the shelf life & quality of Texas Grapefruit & Oranges. It is best if they are stored at a minimum of 50 degrees to prevent fruit from sweating. Sweating will cause fruit to lose its protective layer of wax and glossy shine. Should fruit become damp from sweating, it is best that it is allowed to dry before handling.

Home Storage – Store citrus in a cool area for up to 2 weeks or in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks.

Selection Tips – Choose a grapefruit with a red blushed skin that feels heavy for its size. Heavy fruit means lots of juice. “Tropical Beauty Marks” or blemishes are caused by gentle breezes and do not affect the fruit inside.
