I just happened to have more photos from my Frenzy of Snapping.
I was Raised in the south, we always had one and most people we visited had one or two.
When we first got married, bob had one in his Garage, a long wooden handle and a metal claw.
He has no idea where he got it or when.
We brought it with us to this house but the wire rusted and fell off,
He repaired but it many times before it went to the curb for trash.
Our front yard had a ginormous Pink Grapefruit tree. Full of ruby red sweet grapefruit 3 months of the year.
Bob grew it from a seed.
this photo is a few years ago, minus the grapefruit.
the tree to your right, is the tree. When it was loaded the limbs were so heavy with fruit, we told the neighbors to take what they wanted when they wanted.
Several neighbors picked a few each day.
A family from Haiti rented the house across the street and their 12 year old son translated to the parents and we told them to help themselves.
The several years they lived there, this picker lived under our tree for all to use.
The first time they came the child told us they would leave it there, because they had no trees.
It became the neighborhood picker.
Now it is Art Piece because the tree died, fell over in a storm and is gone.
we used it to reach the avocados but the tree is way to tall to reach the fruit and with drought and Covid we have had no fruit for 2 years.
Amazon has dozens of different types.
Hootin Annie sent this link in her comment.
It is a fun read of a blog with a history lesson on pickers.
There are dozens of them on Amazon like this one below.
just search fruit picker
