Tomato picker

  • Middenmeer (NL)
  • 36-40 hours per week
  • fixed-term

Once the first bunches have been harvested, about 1 bunch per plant will be harvested every week during the life cycle of the plant. The harvesters walk with carts full of tomatoes past the tomato plants where the ripe clusters of the plant are cut. Employment at least 12 weeks.

Job Summary

Some of the activities that come with the cultivation of tomatoes:

  • Leaf cutting: When the bunch starts to colour, the leaf is cut away around the cluster.
  • Pruning: A tomato plant can make long bunches with tomatoes. Although this could be commercially interesting, it is decided to leave only a certain number of fruits on the bunch. This means that the plant does not have to put too much energy into making all tomatoes ripe. In this way, the remaining tomatoes get much more flavour and produce beautiful uniform bunches.

You are also willing to carry out other horticultural activities if necessary.
