Ideally you want to list your fruit a 4 to 6 days before it’s ready to pick. This will give pickers enough time to make time in their schedule to pick fruit but is close enough for you to judge the ripeness of the fruit.
The majority of fruit pickers work day shifts. If you are setting a specific date and time, we’ve found weekends or early evenings on weekdays to work best.
Of course you can also create a flexible pick that lets pickers contact you about what date and time work best for them.
Avoid listing your fruit too far in advance of the actual harvest. Pickers often overlook these listings and are afraid the fruit owner doesn’t have a good idea of whether or not the fruit is actually ripe.
