18 Mar, 2013 Crazy for Citrus The Twister Fruit Picker® is a great Citrus Fruit Picking Tool!
If you have citrus fruit, we would like to share some tips for picking your fruit with the perfect citrus fruit picking tool, The Twister Fruit Picker®. These tips are based on our enthusiastic customer reviews. Happy picking!
The true lemon tree can reach 10 to 20 ft. in height and usually has sharp thorns on the twigs. It is especially difficult to pick the lemons on the inside of this dense tree. Because of its design, The Twister Fruit Picker® is a first-rate citrus fruit picking tool. It slips easily into the middle of the tree. If you use the “small fruit adapters” while you’re picking lemons, securing the adapters with twist ties to the picking rings will keep those sharp thorns from pulling off the adapters.
Grapefruit trees are often very large and tall. The Twister Fruit Picker® is a great citrus fruit picker. It works very well by allowing you to twist the fruit off its stem. One customer noted that they had previously used a basket type picker, but it was difficult to maneuver to pick specific fruit from a bunch, which is how grapefruit grow. With The Twister Fruit Picker® they had no problem targeting the specific fruit they wanted to pick. With the old basket picker they often found the fruit ripped from the stem, leaving a hole in the grapefruit. Using The Twister Fruit Picker® completely eliminates any damage to your grapefruit. Once you have secured the fruit, you only have to twist to remove the fruit.
Our customers tell us that another reason The Twister Fruit Picker® is the best citrus fruit picking tool is that it can reach the highest, sweetest fruit at the very top of a tall tree without a ladder. If you are picking a very large tree, you might find it helpful to tie a rope on the handle of a narrow bucket, throw the rope over a larger branch and secure it to your waist or a belt loop. We’ve been told that this will allow you to pick your fruit even faster because you don’t need to come all the way down when picking several pieces at once.
