Production of good quality fruits is influenced by many factors such as soil, weather conditions, nutrients in soil and etc. Present article briefly describes importance of different nutrients in managing quality of fruits in relation to different nutrients and physiological disorders. On the other hand, increase in productivity of horticultural produce removes large amounts of essential nutrients from the soil. Without proper management, continuous production of crops reduces nutrient reserves in the soil. This leads to deficiency of nutrients in the soil and ends with the serious physiological as well as nutritional disorders in fruit crops. In Banana (Choke throat, chilling injury, chlorosis and bunch deformation) has been found. Little leaf formation in mango due to lack of Zn. Fruit drop and granulation are serious problems in citrus fruits. Boron (B) deficiency found in papaya and guava. Fruit drop in sapota and fruit cracking in pomegranate which is overcome by spraying of calcium compounds or GA3 at 120ppm on young fruits.

Key words: Status of fruits, Nutrients, Physiological and Nutritional disorders.
