View Full Version : My lemons keep molding? How should I store them?

When I keep lemons in my fruit bowl or at my desk at work, I have noticed them growing mold.
Should I be keeping my lemons in the fridge?

Hey Mueller! You know, it's funny, that exact thing was happening to me....and my oranges too, for some reason. I found that when I took them out of the bowl I had them in, and put them in one of those loosely meshed hanging baskets, they no longer mold. Maybe they just need to have air circulation? I don't know......but I imagine storing them in the fridge would work too. Good luck!

You might be right. Its always the part of the lemon that isn't getting any air to it.
Nice new pic!!

Lemons molding? Wow. Mine stay fresh for weeks. I even cut them and put them back in the fridge and it dries the tip to protect the inside so I can just cut off the dry skin and cut my self a new piece. Yum I love Lemons. :D

I used to buy conventional lemons and they would keep for weeks and weeks.
My organic lemons go mouldy in just a few days. I, too, keep them in the fruit bowl.
I just think of it as another incentive to drink my lemon juice . . . or all of my money and time getting organic lemons will go to waste!

These are organic. I don't think I've ever seen conventional lemons mold either.

As soon as I get my lemons they go straight in the fridge. It's the best way. Especially if they are meyer lemons-those are delicious, but delicate. My mom has a tree and I cut them off leaving a bit of stem. :) But if you leave out keep them touching each other, that helps a bit.

I keep some in a bowl and some in the fridge. If the ones in the bowl aren't getting used up then I do keep them in the fridge.
