Orange Troubles


Could you tell me if it is necessary to refrigerate oranges? I thought I could leave them on my counter in a bowl and after two days home from the grocery two of them were growing mold on the peel. We do live in the valley of mountains and have high humidity.

Thank you

Hi Cindy,


Perhaps your climate had something to do with moldy oranges, but I'm almost wondering if they were old when you bought them, deteriorating quickly. 

Use the supermarket as a model for produce storage.  The oranges are always at room temperature, not chilled like lettuce, for example.

Oranges are juiciest when stored at room temp; however, if you like to eat them chilled, it doesn't hurt to store them (unwrapped) in the refrigerator.  Wrapping the oranges in plastic definitely can lead to mold growth.  Oranges stored at room temperature should last about 2 weeks.

Hope this helps,
