How to Choose a Good Orange (or Lemon, or Lime, or Grapefruit…)

When shopping for citrus fruits like oranges (or lemons, limes, grapefruits, clementines, etc.), get a feel for how hard or soft they are by holding them gently in your hand.  Don’t squeeze the fruit so hard that you’ll crush it, but hold it firmly enough that you can tell whether it’s hard as a rock (not good), mushy (not good either), or slightly soft (just right).  You want to choose citrus fruits that you can imagine being able to squeeze easily for juice.  You’ll also want to look for bright, vibrantly colored fruit (oranges should be bright orange, lemons bright yellow), and fruit that’s free of any bruises or blemishes.
