The Q&A Archives: Picking fruit

Question: Is there a good tool for picking fruit high in a tree? I have a tall apricot tree and instead of using a ladder I was wondering if there was a tool available for harvesting the fruit. Where can I get one?

Answer: There are several telescoping fruit pickers available at Home Depot. These typically have a basket to catch the fruit plus a sharp edge to cut the stem from the tree. The long handle telescopes for reaching the topmost part of your fruit tree. Enjoy your harvest!
