Mechanical fruit harvesting in 1966

Mechanical fruit harvesting in 1966

Proc. N. Y. St. hort. Soc, 112: 47-52

The quality of apples harvested by the Cornell machine in 1966 was comparable to that of typical hand-picked fruit in most instances. The firm varieties were in excellent condition and were indistinguishable from hand-picked fruit. The softer varieties, and particularly those with a thin skin, had more deep bruises and cuts than hand-picked fruit. A greater increase in trim waste occurred from harvest to processing time in the softer varieties.
