Identifying artificially ripened fruits

Artificially ripened fruit can be identified by their lack of a uniform colour. For example, artificially ripened mangoes will be green and yellow in patches around the surface. This may be because they have been treated and the chemical has not reached the entire fruit. The fruit gets the yellow colour, but since the fruit sugars remain immature, it does not taste sweet. The flesh will also not be fully ripe inside. The artificially ripened fruit will be dry and less juicy as compared to a naturally ripened one. They will also not have the sweet aroma that comes with a natural fruit. more

Surendra, at the end of the day consumer needs to be aware of identifying artificial ripened fruits. Hence the circle may have such awareness exposures for society betterment. It is very difficult to get rules for regulation with zero enforcement as everybody knows in the country. more  
What is the use of having such chats when there is no authority/ministry commenting and joining the group. waste of our time. more  
For anything and everything to be done, or undone, what is needed is basic WILL POWER and desire. When it comes each and every Municipal / Govt official they too have this rare commodity of WILL POWER. But it is generously used to EXTRACT corruption money and look the other way. Therefore, we need to have WILL POWER & desire to make this idiots stand in front of FIRING SQUAD. more  
It is the problem of interest in Govt authorities. Even 2-3 incidences of action during the season of various items will create a huge fear among such adulterer. more
