Not necessarily. I took some seeds from a lemon bought from the store and planted them indoors. I now have a small lemon tree, though I doubt it willl ever bear fruit, it's still a very nice tree To answer your question, I keep mine on the counter when the weather is cool, but refrigerate them once it gets warm.

I have found that lemons last a lot longer in thr fridge. Before use, I roll the on the counter with pressure and nuke them for 15 seconds. The juice runs out very easily.

I roll first, then nuke.

Before the days of microwave ovens, it was...roll, roll, roll.

Now, it's roll and nuke.

Actually, local farmers have the lemon trees. Whole orchards of them, in fact. When I need lemons, I just stop at one of the many roadside stands and select as many as I need at the time. Much cheaper than the supermarkets and a lot fresher, too.

That's why I keep all my recipes on my work computer as well as my home computer. I can make a shopping list at work and fill in on the way home.

You enjoy one of the benefits of living in Southern California. Tree fresh lemons and just rumors in Massachusetts.

I'm lucky enough to have a Meyer's lemon tree. I do keep them in the fridge after I harvest them - keep your fruit separate from your other vegies in the bin.

You're lucky Barb,
I've never seen a Meyer lemon here in Md.
Aren't they supposed to be a bit sweeter than regular lemons?
I keep my lemons in the fridge also.
