Step 4
Apples then float in chutes of water to clean them and prevent bruising. Then they are run under a scanner which checks for the colour, shape and bruising. A computer then sorts the apples into groups based on the information collected from the scanner.
Step 5
To keep the apples from bruising, bins are placed in and filled with water causing the apples to float, then the bins are drained. The apples are put into crates and stored in a cold room for a few weeks or months depending on the information collected and some are ready for marketing straight away.
Step 3
Large bins are placed around the orchard three days before harvesting. Apples are picked by hand and then placed in bins.
Step 2
One month before harvesting, reflective material is laid between rows for sunlight to bounce onto the apples for them to grow.
Step 1
When orchards are grown they grow in a V shape to support the weight of apples and gives more exposure to sunlight.

Step 7
When the apples are ready, they go through another visual check if there is any bruising. Then a machine places a sticker on the apples.
