How to Start Fruit Farming Business

Is growing fruit trees a hobby and a passion for you? Do you want to turn this pastime into a source of livelihood?

The following will guide farmers, novice entrepreneurs and those who want to have a small business into the basics to startup a fruit farming business.

Fruits are among the constant commodities in the food market. Almost everybody eat fruits due to its nutritional value, or simply because they are delicious. Accordingly, growing fruit trees can be a good source of income for every farmer and new entrepreneurs desiring to tap the potential of the fruit growing industry. With these, the following are the basic things one needs to know when starting a fruit farming business.

Fruit Farming Business Plan

Every business venture needs careful planning and strategizing at the start. This plan necessarily includes all important and necessary matters to the farm. Having a definite plan will give the entrepreneur an overall outlook regarding the business, together with possible problems, which may be encountered. It involves the startup cost for the fruit farming biz, the place to start planting the orchard, the equipment necessary for farming and transporting the fruits, the market, the needs of buyers and the existing fruit farming biz competitors.

Where to Start a Fruit Farming Biz

One of the most important elements of every farming business is the land. Choosing the right location for your orchard greatly affects the growth and production of your business. Several factors must be considered in choosing the land to plant your orchard. This includes the type of soil, the soil’s PH, exposure to sunlight and source of water. In determining these factors, an orchard owner must first determine what type of fruits to grow in the farm. It also involves choosing the size of the trees to be planted. As a general rule, the dwarfer the trees, the sooner it will produce fruits.

Equipment to Use

A fruit farmer does not need to invest much on equipment when the farm is not that big. The most common and basic tools needed are air-blast sprayer, small tractor, mower, pull behinds and carts.

The air-blast sprayer is for fungicide, insecticide and application of plant growth regulator. The tractor on the other hand should be small enough to run around the trees in the orchard. A 30-60 hp tractor is sufficient for small farms. A cart or small truck is also necessary to transport the harvest from the farm to the storage area, and also to the market and other fruit farming biz clients.

Settle All Legalities

Even if your business grows overtime, the need to settle all legal matters must not be taken for granted. Legal issues may arise in the future, which will hamper the growth of your business or even lead it to eventual loss. It is best to deal will legal matters at the start of the business by going directly to the local government office. Secure a fruit farming biz license. Ask for the requirements and comply to them accordingly.

  • Biatus Bito said on May 10, 2010
    I am a Papua New Guinean living in Bulolo, Morobe province. I can recall locals selling fresh oranges and mandarine at the local market in the 70s. In the 1980s and 90s, most of these fruits are now being imported from overseas because there is no existing orchards initiated by the government or other business. Most of the local produces are only seasonal.

    Seeing the increasing population and need for healthy food, I want to venture into the business of fruit farming. I have the land and little bit of skills and knowledge (I am a forester). There are other business opportunities in the vegetable industries like carrot, broccoli, cabbage, spring onion, buld onion, potato etc.

    Where can I get help from outside my country? I am looking also for a partnership. I need start up capital to venture into this business. Biatus

  • Raghunath expert adviser said on March 31, 2011

    @IDOWU OLUSEGUN, Hi IDOWU OLUSEGUN, There are two methods available right now. You can grow olive tree from seeds or use mature branch. It can survive in any type of soil with PH between 5 to 8. They need plenty of water so water the plants deeply in every 5 to 10 days. It need subtropical climate. It can not survive in too cold weather. Olive trees are shallow rooted and do not require very deep soils to produce well.

    @Odella Filder Monica, Hi Monica, You have not mentioned details about your size of land, budgets etc so it is difficult for me to give the exact figures. Here are some points that may help you.

    • Plant your fruit trees at least 20 feet in distance from each other and also select a sunny place.
    • It is always wise to plant more than one variety of fruit at a time. Better you choose pears, apples, plums and cherries these fruits have reliable production.
    • You can use common planting technique, plant atleast three four trees in a whole.
    • Always keep your trees in a manageable size so that it will be easier to thin, sprey and prune.
    • There should be good water facility as fruit trees need lots of water during the growing season. One important point is that keep at least 3-4 inches of Mulch around each tree to cover the soil.
    • The fruit tree need fertilizer before the leaf sprout occurs and it happens during the month of march so you need to fertilize the trees ahead of the time.

    @watyekele moses, Hi watyekele moses, Growing passion fruit is not so hard as people think. Infact i can say growing passion fruit is very easy. It needs only well drained soil, plenty of water and little care. There are different varieties of passion fruit and those grow well in different climate as well. Usually purple passion fruits grow well in subtropical region and yellow passion fruits grow well in tropical region. you can choose which variety you want to grow. You can find more information about passion fruit here.

Surely you have agricultural science students in your countries (Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria) who could help you with your proposal??? Realistically, you should only go into business in an area you know something about- if you don't know anything about fruits, never mind how to manage fruit plantations, then don't go into the business.

Meanwhile we starts vegetables farm between the mango plants. So u will get 1000 rs per month as a lease amount upto 60 month so your investment return back. After 5 years if u want to sell the land we will buy the 10rs per sft. Other wise u sell it to any body. Means total 60 thousand rupees is the lease amount and 1 lakh is the land cost . Total 160000rs. Interested people send their interest babbuchow@gmail.com

    Dear @Pallavi Limaye, I am a farmer from Punjab and we been doing citrus plants( Kinoo - hybrid of orange, malta and mousami). On my last visit to Australia, I got involved in an Olive plantation and I have started with 2 acres experimental Olive orchard in Punjab, India . I would like to do it in a bigger way. Although I do not have any experience in AZ farming methods and systems but being from farming background, I am an advocate for alternate farming. If you can send details about what you have in mind for joint set up, we can discuss it further. All the best. Regards,

  • Amarjit Singh Bhattal beginner adviser said on November 2, 2012

    @Raghunath, Dear Sir, Actually I got a bit confused about your response about irrigating Olive plants. I was told during my two weeks training with an Olive Association in Australia that "Olive plants do not like water at their feet". Drainage is very important for these plants. They can with stand dry weather better than water standing around the plant. This being a mediterarian plant, it does well with average water and thats why most orchards are on gently sloping land in well drained soils. My Plants in Punjab are just an year old and I am an experimental stage. Therefore, I wanted to clarify this if I am doing the right thing. So far I have not come across ANY established Olive farmer in India. If you know of someone, I would be thankful in introducing them to me so that we can seek necessary guidance and exchange notes.

  • Raghunath expert adviser said on November 5, 2012

    @Amarjit Singh Bhattal, you are right sir. I checked all my posts but I didn't see where I wrote about having standing water. They should be watered in every 8-10 days and water them enough so that it reaches the deep roots. These trees grow for many years so the roots go really deep.

  • Amarjit Singh Bhattal beginner adviser said on November 14, 2012

    @Raghunath, Thanks for your update Mr. Raghunath. I had responded to your comment #21:
    I am not Olive plants specialist. I just had some training in Australia as I mentioned and I do have a small experimental farm with Olive plants and I am seeking as much input as possible. I have tied up with an Israeli Agricultural consultant recently and they are due to visit my farm end of this month. Most Plantations in India are at very nascent stage and its mostly hit and trials going on. I hope we get better and concrete information for Olives with State specific information in India as this plant has a good future in India and is likely to bring good returns for farmers in India in due course of time. All the best. Amarjit Singh Bhattal

My problem is limited resources to move on well with the project. Any investor who is willing to invest in this project can come and put hands together and i supply him or her with the fruits. Please email me at elagosam@yahoo.com

    I am an indigine of kano state nigeria, i am planning to row mango and guava, but I dont know if the soil will favor me. The soil is perhaps dry at surface, by digging 4_5 inches you find the soil weight. Is it possible for me to achieve my aim of planting fruits, more importantly mango & guava? Tanx kassim

  • Amarjit Singh Bhattal beginner adviser said on April 22, 2013

    @abinash kumar panda, Dear Abinash, Well drained soils and good irrigation source are very important for Banana plants. I suggest first get the soil tested and get the survey/mapping done of the land. Ideally land should be gently sloping to that excess water runs off as these plants do not like stagnant water for long. All the best

    I understand, mango and guava grow well in the South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal. What minimum land size is required for commercial cultivation of mango and/or guava? What are the other basic aspects that need to be kept in mind? I have other occupation and want to start off with fruit cultivation as a side activity and if it does well I will increase it further.
