Fruit is a vital element of every day’s diet because it contains all the essential nutrients required to maintain a balanced diet. Fruit is also useful in the fields of medicine and beauty. The economic potential of growing top quality crops is for them to increase the farm’s income, in particular in India as demand for higher value food products has grown more rapidly compared with those produced primarily from basic crops.It is estimated that India will be the world’s biggest producer of citrus fruits, bananas and mangoes with an output of 98 million tonnes between 2020 and 2021. In the last few decades, fruit trade has become increasingly important.Trade is the best way for each nation to acquire foreign exchange reserves and develop its economy.The establishment of new export oriented businesses must also take place, in view of enabling Indian citizens to have more choice and support for agricultural activities over the years ahead. The fruit business is playing a key role in the accumulation of FCNRs. There is specific place in international trade as well as domestic commerce for fruits which are produced from organically grown crops.
