Fruit Staging

Display Fashion
  • Soft fruits: Arrange across the plate, leaving stalks attached. Smaller soft fruit should be in bunches.

  • Pears: Arrange around the perimeter of the plate, on their side, with stalks facing inwards.

  • Apples: In a circular fashion, with the stalk end facing down.

  • Tomatoes: On a plate with stalks facing upwards.

  • Berries: In an open bowl, one variety, with an approximate weight of 200g.

General Staging Tips
  • Paper plates are fine, but reusable "china" plates are better.

  • Ensure plates and bowls used are clean and chip free

  • Remove any dirt from entries.

  • Ensure the produce is neat and tidy and try for it to be blemish free.
