With oranges, colour is not always the best indication of ripeness. The skin should feel firm and smooth — and a juicy, ripe orange should be plump and heavy. Lemons should be yellow in colour, feel firm and give slightly when pressed gently as this indicates less pith. Mandarins should smell fragrant and appealing, feel firm but not hard and the skin should be slightly loose around the fruit.
Citrus fruits are best stored in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.
