Due to restrictive characteristics of prickly pear plants, such as height, distribution of the leaves, and the lack of personal for recollection of the fruits, an arm for nonselective harvesting of prickly pears, of the variety Alfajayucan, has been developed. This device is designed to pick the fruit without damage, to reach the most remote fruits, to enhance the work conditions and to be easy to handle.
