You may be able to "holdup" the water for 12 or so hours but not for days or weeks.
(I hope you where not getting ideas of storing the winter water for use in the summer in a tank. just kidding)
Send the grey water thru pipes to the fruit trees. The water should stay underground/sub surface at all times.
Technically you could filter out solid matter down to 10 or 5 micron, use UV light or heat to remove microbes, then remove mineral (distillation) and then drink the water.
So you will find stories of people doing that and drinking the water, but on our scale,
Just send the water thru a mulch filter. Make a waterway to each of your fruit trees and you should be ok.

They store the greywater in a pool and eat fish out and water their lettuce/veggies, so it must be "safe".
They also have goats, which probably drink the filtered water.
So readup on them, call/email and see what they are doing thats right.
I think they have been doing it for 5 or so years no one has gotten sick.
(side note: ever time I buy a bottle of water and I see filtered water I always think it is filtered grey/black water, lol)
