Hanging

The next crucial step, both short and long term, is the hanging. The twine is about 4 feet long to avoid excessive stress from the weight. Every 8-fingers or so we make a little loop and pass it through the stem.

If the distance between the fruit is too little, then they touch and stick to each other, causing injury to the surface and inviting dangerous fungus. The strands need to be far apart enough so that air moves freely. The knot on the hanger needs to be such that it can move easily for rearranging.

I experimented with wire, but in the end the humble twine was the king.
