    I have read on other posts that no refrigeration is need and will last over a month. I have also read that the store bought ones are already over a month old when delivered to the store. Hope this helps [​IMG]

    Quote:Much longer. They will easily last two weeks without being refrigerated at all.

    They will last longer unwashed than washed.

    IF refrigerated, I tell customers that they last about 8 weeks.
