Do you sometimes have difficulty squeezing the juice out?

Get the juice out easily by rolling the fruit on the countertop back and forth several times, while applying gentle pressure, right before slicing. A piece of fruit kept warm or at room temperature will also yield more juice than one that came straight from the refrigerator. If you want to get more juice out of the fruit, give it a quick nuke in the microwave—about 5 to 10 seconds on high should do the trick. Just make sure not to overheat the fruit as the juice will turn bitter.
