It is dried with hot air and then is checked with an electronic gauge that classifies the fruit by size, colour and damage to the skin. After waxing the fruit it is sorted manually to remove fruit not considered suitable for packaging. Following a further sorting by size with an electronic gauge the fruit is placed into meshes that are then packed manually into boxes.
