How to Select
Pick an orange that is firm, smooth, and heavy for its size as this is an indication of how juicy it will be. As well, smaller oranges tend to be juicier than big ones, which is why they are often packaged in bags that are labelled for juicing. Don’t be fooled by the colour of the peel, this is not an indication of quality. In fact partially green oranges or oranges with brown russeting (like dryer, brown veining) may be just as flavourful inside as those with a brightly hued orange peel on the outside. Certainly, avoid oranges that feel soft or mushy, or have traces of mould.
How to Store
Oranges will stay good for up to a week on the counter, and up to two weeks loose in the fridge.
