Avocados and mangoes mature on our trees and ripen after they are picked. We use small hand shears to carefully remove the fruit and place them in picking bags, taking care not to bruise the fruit. It’s delicate work, carried out by hand, using picking poles, cherry pickers and ladders. After the fruit is picked, it’s transported to our packing and grading sheds.
