How to keep your fruit from browning 

After you slice your fruit, soak them in lemon or orange juice for about 20 minutes. The acidic juice will stop the fruit from browning. 

How to store your a rainbow fruit platter

After your party or snack time, it’s best to store your fruit in an airtight container or resealable bag. You’ll have a nice fruit salad for 2-3 Days. As the fruit starts to brown you will want to disregard it.
