How to store Pummelo?
There are different ways in which we can store Pummelo and able to make it safe from getting spoiled easily. We cannot make any food safe from getting spoiled forever, but we can use different ways to save them from spoilage for a longer time. Let’s discuss them below.
Pummelo can be stored in different ways, and one of them is using a pantry or kitchen counter. We can store Pummelo easily in these places, but it will not remain for longer depending upon the condition of the Pummelo. If it is sliced, it will get spoiled early, and if not, it will remain safe.
If it is almost stored enough on the shelves’ shelf, it will have more chances to get spoiled in the pantry. The only condition is that we have to store the Pummelo in a cool, dark, and dry place to keep them safe.
A refrigerator is one of the other places or conditions in which we can store the Pummelo easily. There are also some steps for storing in the refrigerator. If you want to store them for longer, you will have to use these steps. Otherwise, it will not remain safe for a longer time.
If you decide to store Pummelo in the refrigerator, you have to make sure that they are not washed, and if it is sliced, then the slices are needed to be stored in the airtight container or wrapped in a plastic wrap to keep them safe from moisture. Otherwise, use a brown bag if not sliced.
Away from sunlight
Another way to store the Pummelo is by keeping them away from sunlight or any heat sources. Any fruit that will get spoiled is exposed to direct sunlight so, make sure to store Pummelo in a cool, dark, and dry place at a stabled temperature; otherwise, it will get spoiled.
Can you freeze Pummelo?
To extend the lifetime of any food or fruit, we can use a freezer, and it will also help us keep them safe from getting spoiled easily for a longer time. For Pummelo, we can also use the freezer to extend its lifetime. Let’s discuss them in the article below.
We can store the Pummelo fruit in the freezer for longer than that of the pantry and refrigerator. If you want to store them in the freezer, first make sure to peel the skin, divide them into sections, and remove the seeds from it.
After that, take four cups of water and three and a half cup of sugar and then mix until a solution is formed and then boil it. Then cool the solution and pour it on the Pummelo and in the last keep them in the airtight containers or freezer bags and will remain safe from spoilage for long.

If we use the refrigerator to store the Pummelo, it will remain safe for longer than that of the pantry. It will remain safe for about three or four weeks in the refrigerator, or after that, it will get spoiled easily.
If we use a freezer, it will help us store the food for longer than that of the pantry or refrigerator. It will help us store food for about 10 or 12 months, and after this time, it will remain safe, but the taste will not be that good, and it will not remain that fresh.
