How to Store Lemon

General How to Store Lemon Info

You can usually squeeze more juice from a thin skinned lemon, but it is easier to remove the zest from a thicker skinned one.

Short Term Lemon Storage

If kept out of the direct sunlight, lemons can be stored at room temperature for approximately 1 week.

Lemons stored in a plastic bag in the refrigerator will last for up to 3 weeks.

Once a lemon is cut, wrap it tightly in plastic and store in the refrigerator; it will keep 3 or 4 days before its flavor begins to diminish.

Lemon Side Notes

After salt and pepper, lemon may be the most commonly used flavoring ingredient in the culinary arts.
