How to Store Your Mandarin Oranges 

Once you get them home, it's crucial to take them out of their plastic bags and store them in a well-ventilated and cool place. Having good airflow helps get rid of extra carbon dioxide, preventing them from going bad too quickly.

Given our hot weather in Singapore, CNY does not last very long. Storing them in the fridge is a smart move. But when you do, make sure to take them out of the plastic bag to stop too much moisture building up, which could lead to mould or spoilage. Also setting your fridge at a temperature between 5 to 7 degrees Celsius can really stretch out the freshness of good-quality tangerines, keeping them tasty for at least two to three weeks.

If you spot any signs of rot on a tangerine, act fast. Either separate or throw away the affected fruit immediately to stop the rot from spreading to the other healthy ones. And, I strongly advise against eating any gone-off fruits to dodge any potential tummy troubles.
