Sour times for Swat Valley fruit growers

Pakistan area is blessed with fruit orchards - but a third of produce spoils because of primitive infrastructure.

    Pakistan's Swat Valley is mostly known for violence, but it has a much sweeter side.

    Few outsiders know that the area has abundant fruit orchards, with plums, apricots, peaches and cherries among the regions specialities.

    But a third of the produce is going to waste because of poor storage and transport infrastructure. Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab reports.
