HANDLING & STORAGE

Before preparation, store citrus in a cool, well-ventilated area. To maintain air circulation, keep cartons off the floor by placing them on pallets or racks. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends that produce be rinsed before eating or preparation. Detergent should not be used as it is not labeled for food use. To preserve the fresh appearance of lemon wedges after they are prepared, refrigerate in covered containers. Refrigerated wedges will stay fresh up to four days—whole lemons will keep for two weeks.

The best temperature range for lemons is between 45° and 48° F.

SIZING INFORMATION

Sunkist® lemon size designations, printed on every carton, state the number of lemons in the carton, and indicate the size of the individual fruit within. For example, a carton of “140s” contains 140 medium-size lemons. A carton of “200s” holds 200 small-size lemons, while a carton of “75s” contains 75 very large lemons.
