If you are anywhere Near New Mexico, get in touch with me. I made 1000
pounds into pressed juice (homemade 8 bushel press), and into wine. Raw
juice is 1.050, needs acid and the other stuff. Tasty.
I get about 15 gallons of juice from 150# of fruit. I don't make a big
issue of yield, and I don't want to ruin the wine by overpressing with
the hydraulic press. It takes less than a day for one person to pick a
half ton of fruit.
I let the other 2500 (a pickup truck load +) pounds of fruit fall off
the tree. I hate to see it rot, but I can't process all of it, and
nobody seems to want more than a few pounds.
Oh, these are the asian "apple pears" they store well.
