Fruit at Plantacja nad Tanwiħ is picked according to the 7 Rules of Good Harvest:
Rule No. 1
Picking only the right fruit. The berries we pick must be ripe - sweet, undamaged, and over 12 mm in diameter.
Rule No. 2
Picking technique - we pick with two hands, forming a "basket". We pick with a single touch, gently removing the fruit with both thumbs, to preserve the bloom.
Picking is done from the bottom to the top of the bush and all ripe fruit is picked, also from the inner branches.
Rule No. 3
In order to preserve the bloom and avoid damaging or dropping the fruit, we keep the maximum of 5-7 blueberries in our hands at once.
Rule No. 4
The fruit is picked into transparent punnets, to facilitate self-quality control by the picker.
Rule No. 5
Punnets are placed in a plastic tray, which is put on a tray of a different colour, to protect it from dirt.
Rule No. 6
If possible, we put the tray in the shade and always cover it with a white tray to protect from the sun.
Rule No. 7
The supervisor performs quality control and accepts fruit from pickers. In case of quality problems the picker has to sort the fruit and loses time. That is why good picking pays off!
