Process Fruit to Weight

The Process Fruit action is the second step in bringing fruit into your facility during harvest and allows for a variety of options and flexibility in how to get your fruit from the crush pad to your vessels. 

Process Fruit to Weight is specific for fruit that will be sent to your vessels with skins and tracked in tonnage, to be later drained and pressed.

This action can only be performed on Fruit Lots with contents (via Receive Fruit action) and captures information on what and how much fruit you are processing, optional process steps (e.g. sorting, destemming, etc.), and the lot(s) and vessel(s) that you are sending your fruit to.

This article covers:

  1. Received fruit to process
    • Click on Select lots in picker to select one or more Fruit lots to process at the same time

  3. Process to
    • Lot: Select or create your destination lot
      • If you choose to create a new lot, make sure to double check your expected yield. This number will determine your additive calculations for the time your lot is measured in weight (i.e. until Drain and Press).                                                   
    • Vessels: Select one or more destination vessels and enter the weight
    • Lot Stage: Will default to Processed.
    • Click on + Add Lot to add more lots
  4. Archiving: Leave the box checked to archive empty Fruit lots. Uncheck this box if you expect to receive fruit in the future for a Fruit lot that is being emptied of its current contents.

FAQs

Q. Can I process more than one Fruit lot at once?

Yes. Go to the Received fruit to process step and click on Edit lots to choose additional Fruit lots.

Q. Can I process a Fruit lot into more than one destination lot?

Yes. In the Received fruit to process step, enter the weight you'd like to process in total. This can be all or part of the entire lot fill. Then in the Process to step, select +Add lot to add more destination lots. Select one or more vessels per lot, and enter the fill for each. Make sure to double check your final Summary to make sure everything balances (i.e. the processed weight is equal to the processed to tonnage.)

Q. Can I process fruit into a lot or vessel that already has contents?

Yes. In the Process to step, choose 'Combine with existing lot' and select the lot from your list. Then select a vessel, empty or with contents, and enter how many tons were added to calculate the ending fill. You CANNOT add weight to a lot or vessel that currently has a fill measured in volume (i.e. you won't be able to add tons to a lot that is measured in gallons.)
