Tropical and subtropical fruits

Tropical fruit is not a real botanical term, because the only shared characteristic of these plants is that they are not winter hardy and like warm climates. Some people also use the term exotic fruit or southern fruit to refer to these fruit species that grow in the tropics and subtropics.
