Fruit Picker from Lee Valley • $15.50 • Lee Valley OK, OK — most of us probably don't have apple trees in the back yard. (Although we wish we did.) But if you do, or if you're a weekend warrior at the U-pick apple orchards, this little tool might come in handy. It helps you pick fruit off high branches without resorting to a dangerous, wobbly ladder. Stick this on a broom handle, and get fruit off the higher branches with ease.
