• Cherries go into reception tank and floaters are separated out, then pumped into the depulper;
• After being depulped mechanically, cherries are sorted in two ways: clean and those that still have fruit;
• The ones with fruit go to a separate channel to undergo a second depulping;
• Clean cherries are moved with recycled water over to fermentation tanks;
• If there happen to still be cherries with fruit, they are sent to another tank where they will most likely be processed as commercial grade;
• Dry fermentation for 14-15 hours;
• Clean water then used to rinse the parchment which is then moved to a mechanical washer and finally transported to the drying patios or beds.
