11 Jul, 2013 Picking Smaller Tree Fruit and Nuts with The Twister Fruit Picker®
Picking smaller tree fruit and nuts is fun and easy with The Twister Fruit Picker®. Small fruit adapters are included with your purchase of The Twister Fruit Picker®. If you need an extra set, these adapters can also be ordered individually on Amazon. The small fruit adapters snap into the picking rings and can be easily removed for washing.
The small fruit adapters are ideal for picking fruit that is smaller than the picking rings. With the adapters in place, The Twister Fruit Picker® can pick a variety of smaller tree fruit including plums, apricots, cherries, limes and small lemons. We have had customers tell us that they are also excellent for picking figs and black walnuts. If you have dense trees and have trouble keeping the small fruit adapters attached, tie them with a twist tie to the picking rings (see illustration at left).
Another modification that works especially well for cherries is to slip some sheer nylons over the picking rings and secure them with twist ties (see illustration at right). This will provide an extra barrier to keep the cherries in the picking rings and will protect them from being damaged. You can use this adjustment instead of the small fruit adapters or with the small fruit adapters, depending on the size of the cherries.
The small fruit adapters are a unique feature of The Twister Fruit Picker®. Have fun and enjoy picking all of your small tree fruit safely without having to climb any ladders…and appreciate the fact that you are not damaging your fruit or your trees. Happy Picking!
