NEW DELHI: The green revolution of the 1960s and 1970s ended chronic food deficits and while cereals still command the attention of policy makers, fruit production has surged impressively, making India the second largest global producer behind China.
Most Indians still unable to afford them. Farmers don't get good price. Middle men makes the money and the government.

You mean to say that farmers are not enjoying the 'fruits of their labour'?
But the fruits are still out of reach of the common man. What we get in the market is all artificially ripened fruits which are dangerous to health. Mamu, aache din kab ayege.
people should make the habit of eating more fruit and avoid alcohal
Even after being largest producer of fruits the prices dont seems coming down
Join the rivers of india then india will be the largest producer in the world
Nice photo of the fruits. Have you checked out the prices? Rs 40 - 45 a kg of Guava in Delhi NCR.

Largest producer but still many Indians can't afford them...
largest producer of fruits , but lack of storage facility is concerning the farmers, government should encourage in investment in storage facility
Price is still high. Guava today Rs 45 Grapes Rs 120 and papaya at Rs 30 per kg. Forget about production think about affordable prices.
Also major profits are shared by the intermediate agents.
Government should help and plan more motivation for organic farming.
