The Twister Fruit Picker®: It’s Grapefruit Season!

A grapefruit a day may keep the doctor away! They are loaded with vitamin C and are often recommended as a healthy eating option. Grapefruit trees can grow quite large and even commercial growers harvest them by hand, not with automated machinery. Handpicking these generous sized fruits on a ladder can be clumsy and even dangerous, while old-fashioned basket pickers are not big enough. Thank goodness there is a modern grapefruit harvesting tool now available.

The Twister Fruit Picker® was developed to harvest your fruit as if you could extend your arm into the tree and gently pick the fruit, all while your feet stay safely on the ground. Our customers have inquired about whether the picking rings on The Twister Fruit Picker® will open large enough to pick grapefruit.

The answer is a resounding “YES!” When the tension is adjusted correctly, The Twister Fruit Picker® does an excellent job of grasping the fruit. Then, using both hands, you can gently twist the pole to release the grapefruit from the tree.

Grapefruit tend to hang in clusters, like grapes. The slim design of The Twister Fruit Picker® allows it to go into the tree closed. You can then pick one or more grapefruit out of the cluster.

In Texas, Florida, Arizona and Southern California it is time to harvest grapefruit. Grapefruit are also grown in Mexico, Argentina, Israel, Brazil, Cyprus and South Africa.
