Abstract

See full text

An apparatus for washing a cored head of a leafy vegetable or a coreable vegetable including a support, a head holder and a release. The support includes a support mount for mounting the apparatus adjacent a conveyor and a support frame extending from the support mount. The head holder is pivotally connected to the support frame and movable between a first support position and a second release position. The holder is adapted to support a cored head of a vegetable when in the support position. The holder has an opening sufficiently large to permit a wash spray to project through the opening for washing the cored head. The release is affixed to the head holder, whereby moving the release moves the holder from the first support position to the second release position thus allowing displacement by gravity of the cored head onto the conveyor. A method of washing a cored head is also described.
