Description

Considering the height of a Mango tree (until 12 m) it is very useful to harvesting a fruit from this plant using a long picking pole: with the tool in figure 1 the fruit is harvesting rotating it around its stalk but to facilitate the gathering operation, to avoid pathogenic attacks and to preserve the fruit quality can be useful to add a blade to cut the stalk and to shorten the bag (maximum of 30 cm deep) to contain the Mango fruit (Fig.2).
