I would like to get a relative a fruit picker pole for Christmas. This would be for large mandarin oranges (the size of a small/medium navel orange) and large lemons. Here is one at Lowe’s https://www.lowes.com/pd/True-Temper-Fruit-Picker/3028791
Any comments or recommendations? My worry is that I think you should cut the stem when you harvest, when you pull the mandarin off it leaves some peel on the tree and then you must use the fruit right away, it won’t keep. Still better than leaving the fruit at the top of the tree to fall off and splat later. Maybe two people could work together, one with the fruit picker pole and the other with a tree pruning pole with guillotine at end.
