duh! whats up ! long time aye!
post harvesting… pretty simple… my harvests are once and/or twice a week, depending on stage.
as for percentage in color… if the fruit has even a single spot of the color, its gona get harvested.
i do not keep even a single color fruit after the harvest is done.
most of my sorting is done online, meaning while harvesting itself. fruits which are doubtfull are re-sorted.
the fruits are sorted based on where they will be shipped. For local sales, i use major riped fruits, which are for immediate consumption, where as fruits which are for exports are more raw, and have a longer shelf life. these major raw fruits ripe after 5-6 days when they are stored in a cold storage and by the time they reach the shelf, they are ready.
we start harvesting in the morning, and is finished till late noon. then packed and shipped in evening. local is sent thru local road transport, and exports in cold express.
the main aim for clearing all the color fruits while harvesting, is that i can focus and have a common fertigation again.
further discussions are always open
