Tropical Fruit Trees

Tropical fruit trees are not always well known to European gardeners. However, if you live in the tropics, you need to grow food that thrives in the tropics! Some trees we have grown easily are:

Tropical Vines

Of course, not all fruit grows on trees. There are many tropical vines that produce wonderful fruits such as passion fruit and watermelon.

Fruit Trees in the Tropics

When we talk about tropical fruit trees we are usually talking about trees that originate from the tropics. However, there are many trees from elsewhere, that can also grow well in the tropics. One such example is what I consider the king of citrus trees, the Meyer lemon. The Meyer lemon is a very hardy citrus. It can grow everywhere from snowy areas in the northern hemisphere to the heat of the tropics in Australia.

Some trees, more commonly known to other regions, that thrive in the tropics are:

  • Mulberry (bushes not trees)
  • Orange Trees
  • Lemon Trees
  • Mandarin Trees
  • Lemonade Trees
  • Grapefruit

In the tropics you can also grow a wide range of Tropical Vegetables.

Two Seasons in the Tropics

People living in the tropics rarely talk about four seasons. More often they will talk about just two seasons, the wet season and the dry season.
