Photo: Apricot Shipping Crate Central Otago Orchard

A wooden shipping crate is used during harvest time to aid the commercial picker in the orchard near Roxburgh in Central Otago on the South Island of New Zealand.

In the backdrop, a commercial picker uses a specially designed machine to pick each apricot from the tree and then empties them into this large wooden shipping crate. The crate is towed around the orchard by a tractor, and when it is full, it will be sealed up and moved on to the local distributors throughout New Zealand.

The apricot is a fleshy fruit with a thin outer skin and a stone located in the center and when ripe, the coloring of the fruit can be yellow or orange with a slight tinge of red on either side. The redness comes from how the apricot hangs on the tree, as this is the side which usually is exposed to the sun.

Fresh picked apricots collected in a wooden container which is towed behind an old tractor, in an orchard near Roxburgh, Central Otago, South Island, New Zealand.
