Fresh Fruit Juice Yields

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

The following approximate yields are a result of around five years of noting how much juice I squeezed from each fruit, and arriving at an average.

1 grapefruit yields 6 ounces juice

1 lemon yields 1½ ounces juice

1 lime yields 1 ounce juice

1 orange yields 2½ to 3 ounces juice
