In addition to tropical vines, there are numerous tropical fruit trees and tropical vegetables to keep you well fed in the hottest and most humid part of the planet.

Types of Tropical Vine

What are the tree types of vines?

We divide vines into three groups:
Clinging: Vines that have sticky pads or claw-like growths along their stems that can attach to the surfaces they touch.
Sprawling: Vigorous, spreading vines (eg. climbing rose).
Twining: These vines wrap around their supports. Alternatively, they may have twining tendrils that grab and wrap around any supporting structure or plant (eg passion fruit).

Space and Support

Two issues you should consider before planting tropical vines in your garden are support and space.

Some plants require significantly more support than others, so you should make sure you plant them somewhere they will receive that support. So if you’re growing on a trellis, you need to make sure your trellis will support the weight of a mature vine.

Other Tropical Vines

Of course it is not always about food. In addition there are a variety of ornamental vines available that are suitable for your garden and landscape.  Review a list of tropical flowering vines for additional options to consider. However, it will depend on the amount of garden space you have available.

Tropical Fruit Tree List

Of course not all tropical fruits are from the vine. In fact most tropical fruits are grown on tropical fruit trees. This is a list of our favourite tropical fruit trees.
