peppers are collected from wild plants growing in their natural habitats ( Medina-Martínez et al., 2010 ). A common harvesting method consists of removing branches and even entire plants, which compromises plant survival and has drastically reduced wild

tractors and mechanical shakers cannot function, the trees can be harvested by hand or with various assisted hand-harvesting methods. The main problems with the high-density system are that the trees still require 8 to 10 years for full production, harvest
