Storage Tips for Grapefruit
Do you think that grapefruit should be stored in a refrigerator? Well, you are absolutely right then. The easiest way to store grapefruit for a really long time is by refrigerating it.
Keeping them at room temperature may cause the citrus of the fruit to dry out. The otherwise luscious fruit then tastes nothing like its original moist self. You may wonder why does this happen? Well, the reason is that the moment any citrus fruits, including grapefruit, is taken off the tree, they begin to decompose. In other words, these fruits begin to dry out. However, the “drying-out” process can be hampered by refrigeration of citrus fruits.
