Buying and Storing Oranges

Select oranges that are heavy for their size and that feel firm. Avoid any with mold or spongy spots. Buying a big bag of oranges may be a bargain, but keep in mind that you can't see all areas on each orange. One pound equals about 3 medium oranges. You can store oranges at a cool room temperature for a few days, but they'll keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
