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.

The best temperature range for limes is between 45° and 50° F.

SIZING INFORMATION

Sunkist® lime size designations, printed on every carton, state the number of limes in the carton, and indicate the size of the individual fruit within. For example, a carton of “200s” contains 200 medium-size limes. A carton of “250s” holds 250 small-size limes, while a carton of “110s” contains 110 very large limes.
