We have used 10# plastic bagsw/drawstring for years for peaches, apples,
plums & pears with no problems of fruit getting damaged. You can find them
at http://www.rockfordpack.com/DrwStrgbags4.htm. They will even imprint
them for you if you want. Their prices are the best we have found.

> Also how big were the fruits when you bagged them?
