  • Selective harvesting – harvesting mature fruits only;
  • Do not come to break gender branches and reduce the yield;
  • Capability of harvesting from the beginning of harvesting season, when there is a greater number of immature than ripe fruits;
  • Ability to harvest the same row from day to day without fear of trauma or damage to the plant;
  • Do not come to break gender branches and reduce the yield;
