What Makes Our Fruit so Easy to Pick?
At Hall Hunter, we pride ourselves on our superior growing systems for easier, faster berry picking. From planting strawberries on table tops to spacing our plants efficiently, our goal is to yield a high number of high-quality crops year after year, making the work more rewarding for our pickers.
Our plants are smaller, which makes it easier to find and pick our blueberries. We are continually introducing new varieties and producing bigger blueberries that are firmer, and therefore easier and faster to pick. Our blueberries are harvested in bulk – there’s no picking into punnets or sizing and grading as you work. We use insect netting to protect our crops from fruit flies, so the amount of Class 1 berries for picking is very high.
All of our plants are freshly planted every year, with uniform crops and large, high quality berries. We have 3D lateral supports to evenly spread our raspberry crops, making finding raspberries quick and easy. We grow Sapphire Raspberries, the biggest raspberry variety available, so that picking is a lot faster. Our raspberry varieties are very high yielding. Our plants are spaced out well, creating greater light and space between the leaves. This improves berry quality and size; perfect for picking.
We use truss supports to separate the berries from the leaves, so it’s really easy to pick ripe berries. The majority of our strawberries are grown in a wide tunnel, meaning picking the leg lines is effortless. 100% of our strawberry crops are grown on table tops, making them easier to pick as there’s no need to bend down.
