Fruit Exports

Posted On: 24 JUL 2019 6:18PM by PIB Delhi

India’s share in world exports of fruits like apple, pear, peach, plum, apricot and cherry is very low. These fruits are grown in temperate climates and in India can be grown only in specific regions. As such, the availability of exportable surplus of these fruits as well as availability of right quality, colour, size, texture and aroma of fruits, suitable for exports, is low. Details of India’s share in world fruit exports are as under:
