Harvest bags , buckets
« on: May 10, 2014, 05:45:17 PM »
 I am looking at harvest bags and would like recommendations. So far the Hoss picking bucket looks like the way to go. Any suggestions?

I'm like bags that open on the bottom so the fruit is gently released without overturning it.  They are commonly used on commercial apple farms.  Something like this:

The bags that Millet linked to also open up on the bottom for unloading.  I have several of them since I used to farm pears.

Harvey, you used to farm pears?  What all are you growing on your place? - Millet
