How to preserve lemons longer

First we put the lemons in an uncovered container, then in a bag closed with a locking zipper and then in a bag with the same characteristics but adding 1/4 cup of water. Fruit weights were recorded at the beginning and end of the experiment and then every few days to measure moisture loss from the lemons .

After the preservation of lemons

All lemons stored at room temperature hardened after one week . But the chilled fruit did much better: The uncovered lemons (kept in the fruit and vegetable drawer) began to lose a small amount of moisture after the first week and 5 percent of their weight in the following weeks. ; on the other hand, the lemons stored in the zip lock bag, with and without water, did not begin to dehydrate until four weeks later.

As it turned out, the water offered no benefit in preserving the lemons, but the zippered bag was sealed with some moisture.
