The 5 Best Fruit Pickers [Ranked]
A telescoping fruit picker is a safe and convenient way to pluck fruit from trees without damaging them or using a ladder.
Modern fruit pickers are lightweight and feature padded baskets so fruit isn't bruised when picked off the tree.
Our top pick is the Flexrake fruit picker- it extends to 13 feet, has a fiberglass pole, and its vinyl coated and padded wire basket prevents bruising of your lemons, mangoes, peaches and other fruit.
The way it works, is that you place the pickers prongs above the fruit that you are looking to select and when you gently pull on it the fruit falls into the padded basket. This is designed to minimize chances of damaging the tree- comparable to picking apples and other fruit gently by hand.
That said, scroll down to check out five of the best-selling fruit pickers on the market today and see how they compare.
