How to Store Lemons So They Stay Fresh for a Whole Month



But what if you’ve already cut into a lemon? For optimal freshness, seal lemons slices or wedges in a plastic bag or saran wrap and store in the fridge for four more days of freshness.

Bottom line: To make the most of your fruit’s zesty flavor, seal lemons in a ziploc and then stash ‘em in your fridge. Using this tried-and-tested method, you’ll have up to four weeks to savor lemon's tantalizingly tart juice on anything you serve.

Wait, Can You Freeze Lemons?

Yep, you sure can. To freeze whole lemons, place them in freezer bags and remove as much air as possible before sealing. Then when you’re ready to get your hands on that zesty juice, thaw lemons in cold water for 10 minutes, slice them up and squeeze. (Note: Freezing is best for extracting juice only.)
