When fall comes around, lots of fruit is ready to be picked. The exact time each type can be picked differs per country and can be different in certain regions. Is there an apple tree, walnut tree or berry bush in your garden? Then it will soon be time to harvest! Read here how you can make it easier for your customer to do this job.
Picking fruit yourself can be quite work-intensive. Fortunately, handy picking tools make the job a lot easier.
To get all those apples, pears, cherries or plums from the tree without risking your safety, use a special Fruit Picker. This traditional 'collector's item' is mounted on a 23 mm pole to allow easy access to the apples at great heights. Picking fruit has never been easier!
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree
With this fruit collector, you can easily pick up fallen fruit by simply rolling it along the ground. Another adjustable variant is the nut collector. Ideal for walnuts, but also chestnuts or even golf balls.
Speaking of low-hanging fruit
With the Berry Picker, you will never again have to pick berry by berry. With one simple movement, you can pick a large number of berries at the same time. The collection tray easily holds a litre of berries. Just tip them over into a basket and off you go again.
Picked a piece of fruit that was too ripe?
Don't worry, many garden animals also love a tasty piece of fruit. Butterflies, for example, love sweet things. Treat them to pieces of apple pinned on a feeding dish. The more the fruit starts to rot, the more the butterflies like it! For birds, you can stick a piece of fruit in an apple house. A fruit-feeding hanger or feeder pin with fruit helps robins, blackbirds and song thrushes to get their daily dose of vitamin C.
