Why does the fruit have less flavor than before?

Purely commercial interests have caused the fruit to lose flavor and sweetness. Farmers try to obtain the maximum production in the shortest time, and for this they harvest the fruit while it is still green . The interruption of the natural ripening process inhibits the production of the main flavor and aroma molecules, such as ethylene, a gas that is responsible for the synthesis of certain sugars and for reducing the acidity of the fruit. On the other hand, traders have paid more attention to the external appearance of the fruit and have neglected its taste.
