Washing and sorting apples (2 o 2)

Washing and sorting apples

New Zealand can supply fruit to the northern hemisphere when local production is out of season. The country’s apple production increased in the second half of the 20th century, with the development of new types of apples and increasing mechanisation. These apples are on a mechanised washing and sorting system, which requires a minimum of labour.
