CAN I USE GRAYSTON BEESWAX TO WRAP CITRUS?

Yes! Beeswax Wraps and citrus are good friends and go way back. Citrus lasts forever in Beeswax Wraps so you’ll never waste another half lemon. You can expect the cut side of the lemon, lime or orange to slowly lose moisture until it feels dry to the touch. The newly dried end creates a second peel that locks the juices into the fruit. When you’re ready to use your citrus, cut a thin slice off the front of the fruit to remove the dried edge and et voila! You have a perfect citrus fruit ready to eat or juice.

WILL CITRUS FRUITS DAMAGE GRAYSTON WRAPS?

No. The acidity of citrus will not break down your Grayston Wraps or eat the coating. Over the past ten years, we’ve tested and retested our beeswax food wraps with various types of citrus, like oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruits and we have never had issues with the acidity of the fruit breaking down the wax coating of a Grayston Beeswax Wrap.
