Utilizing the secondary data the paper examines the growth rates of area and production of vegetables and fruits among the states under the scheme Horticulture Mission for North East and Himalayan States for the time periods 1991-92, 2001-02, 2010-11 and 2017-18. Our study reveals that growth rates of vegetables and fruits were fluctuating in the reference period. However, growth rate in fruits was less fluctuated compared to the growth rate of vegetables. Among the states under the scheme, Uttarakhand was found to be the most remarkable in terms of improvement in the productivity of fruit crops and Himachal Pradesh in terms of productivity of vegetables. It is found that among the states under study, the change in production of fruits and vegetables was the least in Arunachal Pradesh over the same period.
