A mechanical pepper harvester

A mechanical pepper harvester

American Vegetable Grower 31(5): 8-9, 22

A double open-helix, one-row pepper harvester is described. As the harvester moves along the row, the plants pass through the centre of the double helix. Each helix consists of 2 pieces of pipe wound around a central shaft; the helix rotates through the plants as the harvester moves forward, lifting and removing the fruit.
