Photo: Commercial Fruit Picker Apricot Tree Central Otago

A commercial fruit picker spends days picking each apricot from the tree in an orchard near Roxburgh in Central Otago on the South Island of New Zealand.

To reach some of the higher places and to get into the core of the apricot tree, a commercial fruit picker in an orchard near Roxburgh in Central Otago, New Zealand uses a mechanical crane. The crane helps to unload the apricots faster into their specially designed boxes, but each apricot still needs to be picked by hand.

The process each year is long and tedious, but the money which many of the commercial fruit pickers make on their crops, is well worth the many long hours. A fruit picker should always start at the top of a tree and reap as many of the ripe ones first before starting a new tree. There are certain techniques required for picking fruit, one being they must be handled properly as rough picking and handling can easily bruise the fruit, lowering the cost of the total crop.
