Some varieties of tropical fruit trees include banana, lemon, lime, pineapple, grapefruit, date and fig. There are many other types of tropical fruit trees that are less commonly known, such as mango, passion fruit, papaya, guava, kumquat and mamey.
Tropical fruit trees can be grown indoors and outdoors in regions of the United States where the weather is sufficiently hot and humid. The fruits borne by tropical fruit trees can be eaten and incorporated into many different recipes. To achieve an optimum yield of fruit, it is essential to research exactly what conditions are ideal for the variety of tree being grown.
