  IDENTIFICATION OF TROPICAL FRUIT PLANTS

A tropical climate in the koppen climate classification is a non-arid climate in which all twelve months have mean temperatures of at least 18 °C (64 °F). In tropical climates there are often only two seasons: a wet season and a dry season. Tropical climates are frost-free, and changes in the solar angle are small. In tropical climates temperature remains relatively constant (hot) throughout the year. The fruit crops growing in this climate are known as the Tropical Fruits.
