Through the picking or stripping method, the ripe fruits are picked and selected manually. The picking consists in the manual selection of each individual fruit, while for the stripping a middle ripening point is determined, at which the fruits are ripped off the branches.

The third possible method is the mechanical harvesting, which is carried out in large plantations when the rows are very far apart, with a machine that shakes the plants causing the ripest fruits to fall to the ground.
