It might not be the greatest idea to store lemons in the refrigerator because the cold might dry out the citrus fruits’ zest and cause the lemons to become dehydrated. When you have an abundance of lemons, how should you keep them? We’ll investigate.

On lemons, mold frequently grows. In addition to weather patterns, citrus fruit distribution and harvesting have an impact on the genesis of mold growth. Mold may grow on the citrus fruits itself if lemons are harmed during transit.

Lemons are particularly prone to fungal spores due to their acidic pH. It is true that mold grows more readily in acidic settings.
