I never have but in recent years a surprising % have gone bad. Keep them in a cool basement room where temp ranges 55-60F all yr. but maybe they want cooler. Or maybe my retailer buys leftover junk.

Yes, we do. The majority of homes out here in the Phoenix area do not have basements, altho a few do. So we do use the refrigerator for oranges.

Yes. I prefer my oranges to be cold for eating so I'd do it no matter what. I do think they last longer. I don't have a basement either.

Nope, never heard of such a thing. I suppose people refrigerate bananas too?

Banana skins turn black if you refrigerate them - not too appealing. I don't know how the insides hold up as I don't eat bananas, cold or warm.

Only after slicing and saving the portion not eaten.

Do You Refrigerate Oranges?

Of course! Few things go better with that first cup of "starting fluid" than a chilled navel orange.

This. I only put whole oranges in the fridge in a closed plastic bag. The circulated refrigerated air tends to dessicate them, but that can happen on the kitchen counter in the dead of winter with heat drying everything out too. If the orange needs to ripen a little that's best done at room temp. If the orange is ripe when brought home it needs to be eaten sooner than later.

I do. Even though the oranges I buy are very fresh from the farmer's market, they are not waxed, and they dry out quickly in cold weather, or mold in warm weather, unless they are in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.

We don't have basements, cool or otherwise, in Southern California.
