The shelf life of cut lemons will depend on how they are stored. In their natural state they will last 2 to 3 days, but there are techniques that allow you to keep them much longer.
For example, freezing cut lemons will keep them much longer. You can put salt in the pulp to prevent them from drying out, so when they are used they should be washed only to remove the salt.
