In the era of computer age, with the invention of new technologies the need tocompute with accuracy is increasing. The natural approach of detection of fruit quality is done by the experts on the basis of human eye. Automation of quality assessment of fruits is important in order to reduce human efforts and save time. Image processing can be used to detect the quality of fruit which includes extraction of morphological features. After feature extraction, feature vectors are formed on which K-Means clustering is applied to form clusters. The formation of different clusters helps in grading of fruit.
