13 Aug, 2013 The Best Way to Pick Apples: The Twister Fruit Picker® is a great Apple Picking Tool!
The Twister Fruit Picker® is the best apple picking tool. The legendary Johnny Appleseed would have raved about this safe and innovative way to harvest all varieties of apples. Our customers tell us that it can easily reach every apple on a 30-foot tree.Your feet stay safely on the ground to pick larger Gravenstein apples or smaller crabapples. The best apples often remain in the most inaccessible places, but The Twister Fruit Picker® can easily thread through tight branches and easily grasp those hard to reach apples that are closer to the trunk or at the very top of the tree. One customer noted that picking eight bushels of apples was easy and fun! Even if you have dwarf apple trees, you will find that the sweetest and ripest apples at the top of your tree are easier to pick with The Twister Fruit Picker®.
“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” This old adage is based on the fact that fruit is good for you and apples are full of phytonutrients and have zero fat, cholesterol or sodium. Archeologists have found evidence that humans have been enjoying apples since at least 6500 B.C. In the United States, Washington, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, California and Virginia grow the most apples.
Apple varieties range in size from a little larger than a cherry to as large as a grapefruit. There are apples that have an aftertaste of pears, citrus, cinnamon, cloves, coconut, strawberries, grapes and even pineapple! Even if you do not have an apple tree, many states in the U.S. have U-Pick orchards. Apples grown and picked fresh just taste better. U-Pick orchards also tend to have a larger variety of heirloom apples than most grocery stores. You will be safely harvesting the “best apples,” no matter how high they are growing. It’s a fun activity for the whole family. We found a great web site that lists all the U-Pick Orchards in the U.S. and lists the various kinds of apples that are grown.
Apples are Awesome! Even if you don’t have your own apples trees, America’s best apple picking farms are great places to get your “apple a day.” The Twister Fruit Picker® is the best apple-picking tool. Happy Picking!
