How to Store and Eat Grapefruit

“Eating fresh grapefruit is truly a delight, but how can I keep my grapefruit fresher for longer?” 

If you want to keep your grapefruit fresh for as long as possible, seal them in a plastic bag in your refrigerator’s crisper drawer. This should keep your fruit tasting great for 3 weeks to 6 weeks. However, if you plan on eating your grapefruit sooner, we highly recommend storing your grapefruit on the counter as room-temperature fruit can taste sweeter.

When it comes time to eat your grapefruit, the options are endless! You can check out our Hints page for a guide on how to peel and segment grapefruit, or try out one of our countless grapefruit recipes! Plus, there are endless options you can choose from for DIY grapefruit gifts!
