Fruit Collector / Garden tool

Fruit Collector
Fruit Collector

What:
A product that saves fallen fruit from rot on the ground. And it saves the user from mashed fruit allover the garden.

How:
A flexible landing net in four parts. Connected together with Velcro. Fits trees with a diameter of 8-30 cm. Extruded aluminum arms connected with plastic parts. Fixed to the tree with nylon cargo bands.

Why:
Windfalls rotten fast and it is annoying and messy to get it up and the fruit tends to stay fresher if not lying on the ground.

Where: In any garden with fruit trees. Dimensions calculated on a average apple tree but would fit plum, pear, cherry, orange, lemon trees etc.
