Most criminals are cowards and really not to bright, but if it's a concern, just shoot the criminal and let the funeral home stitch them back together. It saves the taxpayers on hospital and court expenses.

I measured the peduncle on a 40 lbs bunch this morning that I harvested and it was 45mm. So at 51mm you should be harvesting more than 50 lbs of fruit.
