Do you keep lemons in refrigerator?

I was just curious. Who keeps lemons in the refrigerator and who keeps them on the counter. I used to keep them on the counter, but they certainly don't last long. I than changed over to the refrigerator and I'm happy with that. If anything, I can always nuke it a little if I want to get some juice out. I notice when I go to people's houses - I sometimes see there lemons in a basket on the counter. The only thing I keep on the counter is fruit like bananas, apples, and pears. Plus I don't use lemons every day.

Since our house is not air-conditioned, it's imperative that we keep them in the refrigerator. The only time I am tempted to leave them in a basket on the counter is in the wintertime.

They last a really long time in fridge.If you want a lemon tree you can get the miniature trees in the winter you bring them into house.

In the fridge, but I try to remember to take it out about an hour b4 using because it's so much easier to extract the juice when room temp.

My lemons always stay in the fridge until I use them. They don't seem to last long if I keep them out.
