Do you think oranges get sweeter when kept a little longer?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Sun Jan 30, 2011 6:40 pm

Kind of like bananas being better when more ripe?

I'm not sure about sweeter, just know they tend to get dryer as they age, so I always try to eat them while they are fresh. Bananas continue to ripen as they age, as long as they are at room temperature, but I don't think oranges continue to ripen once they are picked.

I know they do... we have an orange tree -
and if we pick some and they're not ripe enough
(everybody's a critic) [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] - we let them sit around
on the counter in their basket and they will ripen.
They will ripen either way but if they sit with friends
they will do so faster.

So... maybe a few of us aren't nuts after all? lol
I have never heard anyone say oranges ripen after being picked or get sweeter. lol

I dunno what the official info is...
but here they do ripen and the do get sweeter.

Tater is right - if left around too long they will
dry out too.

Uh... WATERING the damned TREE is important too... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I have gotten so stingy! about the price of water... our oranges
weren't very "juicy" there for a minute... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I kinda like oranges, lemons, limes (NOT grapefruit though) etc.
when they get kinda "crunchy". What? I do.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Multiple personalities... wish I'd known sooner. Should we be afraid?
Rabbit, when do you like oranges the best... when first picked or after sitting a few days?

"Afraid" ... nahhh ... I don't bite. giggle
Fresh oranges are great - love that clean, fresh citrus smell. Of course, sweet is good, too. I'm not too picky (least not about oranges.)
