Medieval fruit harvesting entailed actually climbing into a tree. I don’t recall ever seeing an illustration of someone harvesting from a ladder. I have scoured the net for an explanation of this practice, and I didn’t find anything. Ladders are not included in lists of medieval farming tools.

My medieval novels are available on Amazon:

About medievalphyllis

I love history and I love writing. I've been working on an historical novel about a medieval viscountess, Ermengarde of Narbonne since 2009. It has been quite a journey and the journey isn't over. Previously I written 6 historical novels for kids, but this is a new challenge.
