How to Pick a Ripe Orange? Select a firm, smooth and thin-skinned orange that is full colored and heavy for its size.

Oranges will keep at room temperature for up to 1 week and in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

How can you tell if an orange is sweet? Browse for oranges with a slight greenness or yellow tint to the skin. 

While you might associate sweet, juicy ripeness with bright orange skin, the yellow-orange and green-orange fruits are

among the juiciest, sweetest oranges, and are fully ripened. Look for the smallest oranges in the group.
