Off Season Fruits

There are various fruits available in off season, esp in big cities. How can one have mangoes in january? Is this a result of cold storage or are chemicals used aggressively to prepone the ripening.

Can something be done by FSSAI/agriculture department to address and reduce these practices? more

The only solution to this menace is to stop buying fruits and we find alternatives. Force the culprits to throw them artificial ripened fruits as garbage. We unnecessarily speak a lot and do not act and blame others. Better stop buying such fruits, all the problems will automatically stop. more  
Preservers are being used and permitted for so many other variety of food materials. It is better to examine whether the food items are hyginic. more  
I agree 100% with this subject entering curriculums in school more  
As she said, it is he result of chemicals used to prepone the ripening. I have noticed this in the mango city of SALEM and Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri in Tamilnadu. The watch dog is not efficient. more  
FSSAI has to conduct samples test and action has to be taken and as our PM new plan to convert to other form as finished product or semi finish product. If this is implemented in all fruits/food/vegetables growing places then this a bow problem get reduced for some extent. more
