A method for stemming tomatoes

A method for stemming tomatoes

Paper, American Society of Agricultural Engineers (82-6523): 16 pp

A sleeve of flexible netting was studied as a method of tomato stem removal. Two types of netting, which are described, were tested and the efficiency of stemming was found to be improved by vertically oscillating the sleeve. To impart vibratory motion to the sleeve, 2 types of mechanical shakers were used and compared: (1) a scotch yoke which provided vertical motion, and (2) an orbital shaker, which provided a curvilinear motion in a vertical plane.
