Product Description

Made in USA! Pick fruit easily with no fruit or tree damage - The Twister Fruit Picker® was designed for you to easily and correctly pick fruit with no fruit or tree damage. The Twister Fruit Picker® is a new, exciting innovative way for your entire family to quickly, easily and safely pick fruit...no ladder is required. Made of a durable lightweight engineered reinforced polymer that is UV-resistant, its slim lightweight design allows you to target individual fruit because you can see what you are picking. Simply slip The Twister Fruit Picker® into the tree, select your piece of fruit, and with both hands, twist it off the tree. No more struggling through the limbs and twigs as you do with a cumbersome wire basket or a bag-type fruit picker! No more tugging and yanking that damages the tree! You can pick one fruit out of a cluster without others falling to the ground, you can easily reach the best and highest fruit in the tree that goes to waste, and The Twister Fruit Picker's® twisting motion eliminates tree and fruit damage. Most fruit, large or small, soft or hard skinned, can be picked with The Twister Fruit Picker®. The Twister Fruit Picker® comes with everything you need to be picking fruit in minutes, except for a standard threaded pole. You need a pole that has a 3/4 inch standard Acme thread. The pole you choose depends on the height of the tree you will be picking. A wooden broom handle type pole will work for short trees. For the most versatility an aluminum extension pole is recommended. The rope length adjuster enables you to use a pole that adjusts from 7 feet to 12 feet. The instruction sheet includes easy step by step instructions on how to adjust the rope length for poles shorter than 7 feet and longer than 12 feet. It also contains simple instructions for attaching The Twister Fruit Picker® to your pole. Included: one set of "small fruit adapters" which easily snap into the picking rings to allow you to pick fruit, small as 1".

This Fruit Picker, the Twister Picker, when used for picking oranges works great.
Brent
The pole came with a threaded end and a hole in the handle end which made threading The Twister's bungee cord through it easy.
Heather P.
The T/P however seems to be strong, durable and so far has stood up to rather rough usage in my backyard.

This invention is fantastic. Very simple, yet the most effective fruit picker I've used. I've tried various versions: the basket type, the kind with the little bag to catch your fruit, and the good ol' ladder. After years of frustration with the typical pickers, I did some online research and found this little gem on Amazon.

It's built very well, and comes with everything you need sans a broomstick to get to work harvesting your fruits. I bought it specifically for persimmons, and it worked just as advertised. I got a 12' extender pole from my local hardware store, and in less than an hour was able to pick off many of the fruit that had been perched high above where the other pickers couldn't reach. I could have picked the tree clean because it was so easy and even fun, but the sun set before I could get too carried away.

The pulley system makes it very easy to operate, and the "tongs" at the end gently grabbed the persimmons without bruising them. I was also able to isolate single fruits in big clusters, which was impossible with the other pickers. These could be pulled off with ease without dropping any cluster neighbors. It's also easy to maneuver through tangled branches.

I also tried it on the avocado tree, as there was one big avocado at the top of the tree that had eluded my bag-type picker the week before. There was no problem snagging it off the tree. I'm sure it would work equally well on lemons, which is my next endeavor.

Highly recommended. Well designed, simple to use, and just plain effective. The seller is also very good. Fantastic customer service and prompt shipping. He includes instructions with the shipment to help you get started. Happy picking!

After years of purchasing products on Amazon, this is the first review I've written.

The product arrived in 2 days after ordering. As explained in the product description, the handle is not included for shipping cost concerns. The directions include specifications for the best type of handle to get, which I easily found at Lowe's.

I followed the directions to install the product onto the handle, which took about 3 minutes, and took it out to the large orange tree in our backyard. The Twister is as efficient as your hand in terms of being able to manuver to the fruit you want to pick, and picks off easily.

The product appears to be make of durable parts. The parts that might wear over time should be replaceable.

All in all, this product is worthy of your attention.

I'd give this this 10 stars if I could. For years I had been using a long reach fruit picking tool from Japan.But the long reach for the tool was 8-10'. I ended up leaving bushels of avocados behind because they were just unreachable. Nix that with the Twister..all you need is a long enough paint stick extension. Put the Twister on the end of the extension stick and if you can touch it, you got it. There's no dropped,bruised fruit, the tool holds the fruit secure. For the most part I can stay on the safely on the ground and still get to the top most avocados. I can safely and easily get all the fruit now, the Twister is the greatest!

I received this picker as a gift and couldn't have been happier. It didn't come with a pole, but I used an extendable pole that came with a light bulb changing kit, and it works great. The picker is very easy to use. It doesent damage the fruit like the one with hooks and a basket. I would highly recommend.

I ordered the twister on Amazon, and received it in the mail 2 days later. It was very easy to set up. I got a traditional 4 foot handle, and bolted that to a 16' adjustable extension pole that I got at a pool supply store. Our apple tree is 30 feet tall in some places, and I wanted to be able to reach all the apples. I was able to easily adapt the rope/bungee for use with this longer pole. Entire setup took maybe 10 minutes. I went outside and started picking - this thing works GREAT!!! I can easily reach all the apples on the tree, and thread it through tight branches to reach all the apples. I picked about 100 apples in maybe 30 minutes. All you have to do is give it a quick spin, and it plucks the apple right off without disturbing other apples nearby. Sometimes it is a bit tricky to not knock off another apple, but I think of all the apples I picked, I only knocked down a few.

Overall, I think this product is EXCELLENT and I would highly recommmend it.

I have a large orange tree in my back yard and had been using the basket type fruit picker, which was a complete disaster. Half the time I ended up pulling off a small branch when I got the orange or I would puncture the rind with one of the basket prongs. I had been looking for a better way and found the TwisterPicker. Super easy to assemble with a painting pole I got from Home Depot. Works like a charm. Easy to use and works just as its described. I went outside and harvested a dozen oranges from the top of the tree in a matter of minutes. Well made, easy to use, and works just as described. Looking forward to using this for the rest of the season on the orange tree and I am very much looking forward to seeing how it does on the peach and nectarine trees.
