How can I store grapefruits?

Michael T. Murray, ND
Naturopathic Medicine

Since grapefruits are juicier when they're slightly warm, store them at room temperature if you plan to consume them within one week of purchase. If you will not be using them within this time period or prefer them less juicy or colder, store them in the refrigerator crisper, where they will keep fresh for two to three weeks.
