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