It’s harvest time! This is what those months of hard work on the plot have been all about. So what kinds of products are out there to help you reap what you have sown?


This fruit picker has an integrated stainless steel blade, 13cm (5in) diameter basket and an interchangeable, washable cotton bag. When partnered with the Vario ZM-V4 lightweight, adjustable handle, the fruit picker can reach a maximum height of 5.7m (18½ft).



PRICE: £45.95

KG verdict

This lightweight tool is very easy to use. When ripe, most fruit can easily be encouraged into the bag with careful use of the plastic ‘teeth’ around the top. When picking slightly underripe pears, the sharp blade at the front of the picking basket can be used to sever the stalks. The angle of the picker and the handle itself are both adjustable.
