The growing demand for myrtle berries for use in the production of liqueurs is at present being met through direct harvesting from spontaneous plants. The difficulty of harvesting berries from plants that differ greatly in shape and size requires a large expenditure of labour which leads to high production costs. However, besides the need to increase the availability of berries, in order to reduce costs it is necessary to use proper harvesting systems that are respectful of plants and fruit, but which are most of all capable of facilitating harvesting. The present study compares the results of different harvesting tests on low-, medium- and high-growing plants with a combing machine powered by a generator and a portable battery.
