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.
