The Fruit Trampoline

The Fruit Trampoline.

The Fruit Trampoline is a highly energy efficient and entertaining way of combining fruit harvesting with the production of freshly squeezed juice. The process is simple and involves no complex technology, artificial additives and causes no harm to squirrels*. This informative diagram, provided by the inventor of this ingenious device helps explain its basic principles:

a) inaccessible soft fruit

b) a fruit picker with unusually large feet

c) hand picked fruit

d) freshly foot squeezed juice (delicious!)

e) a trampoline

f) a squirrel (completely unharmed) 

* this aspect of the fruit trampoline is still under review   


  1. Brilliant, the thought of bouncing around picking my fruit really made me smile :)

    1. thank you Dee, the fruit trees on my allotment site are not allowed to grow above 6 feet high so I don't think I'll need a trampoline to help me pick, it might be good as bird scarer though.

    1. I'm pleased you think so too Sarah, but the people at the patent office clearly lack our vision, in fact they told me to go away and get a life.

  3. Haha, love it! I need one of these - exercise with a purpose!!

    1. thank you Caro, exercise with a purpose is always the the best exercise, especially when the purpose is fun!
