Hand selection of cherries (each containing two beans) one-by-one, called picking , is expensive, but conducive to higher quality. Under an alternative method, stripping , every fruit, whether mature or immature, is removed from branches in an undifferentiated way and separated later. A related method, whereby branches are shaken mechanically, also requires further inspection and separation. Neither stripping nor shaking is necessarily efficient, even though fruit is initially collected in higher volumes. Once collected , sticks, leaves, stones and other natural foreign bodies are separated from the cherries.
