I tried doing this puzzle with a grid, but that didn't help much.
I got the following solution after assuming that the Mango was the other yellow fruit: 7  R  Pomegranate 6  U  Orange 5  Q  Banana 4  T  Guava 3  V  Apple 2  P  Plum 1  S  Mango After discovering the QTApple and RU sequences, it was a matter of trying each candidate position for the pair. The three clues that told how many boxes were between two options were the most troublesome, but after placing the above sequences in a candidate position, usually the order of the two options in the "boxes between" clue was forced. The PMango, VPlum, and V NOT Guava were the clues that usually resulted in a conflict that invalidated the candidate location. If anyone finds a way to solve this with logic at every step like the puzzles on this site, please share.

We cannot do this type puzzles on grid
Yes, zenobia, we cannot do this type of puzzles on grid because we don't have definite information.

Let me walk you through how I solved the puzzle. Started with the Clue "more than 2 boxes above Guava". (For all other clues we get more possible cases.) Since, above Guava there must be more than 2 places, so I choose Guava on 4th(CaseI) place and 3rd (caseII) place . But, in CaseII when Guava is in 3rd place. We arise with two sub cases again in one case we cannot place R and in another case we get a conflict with R and mango. So, we can invalidate CaseII. Now, we can Simply go with CaseI. Here also we get two sub cases where one can be eliminated via Vmango clue. Left with only one case. 7R 6U 5 4Guava 3 2 1Mango We can arrange QT only in 5,6th positions. And, we can do remaining easily.
