Select the oranges that are heavy and firm, with a shiny and smooth skin. Oranges that are light may lack pulp and juice. A rough skin is a sign of an orange that is old and deteriorated from the inside. Never get an orange that shows cuts, perforations or has a soft part and over all things it started to loose color.

How to preserve an orange:

Never put on the refrigerator the juice for prolonged periods of time because it looses its proprieties. Fresh oranges can last over 2 weeks on the refrigerator but room temperature gives you more juice.
