You can use sed to search between the start and end you are looking for:
Code:
$ sed -n "/<fruits>/,/<\/fruits>/p" file

edit: I missed the mango part Smilie Thanks, pamu Smilie

Code:
awk '/<fruits>/{k=1;s=0;f=""}
    {f=f?f"\n"$0:$0}
    /mango/{s=1}
    /<\/fruits>/{k=0}
    k==0 && s==1{print f;}' file
