Thorn Proof Gloves?
« on: April 17, 2019, 03:24:31 PM »
Has anyone had any luck with finding Thorn Proof Gloves for picking citrus that actually work, I am particularly interested in thinner gloves made from modern high tech fibbers vs thick leather?

thanks

I saw a video from Japan of pickers wearing gloves while picking fruit from Yuzu trees.

You might look into kevlar gloves.
