A Newbie in Need
- Hi All,
I just discovered the Pfaf website this week. Terrific site for
research but not entirley what I'm searching for.
Information Im after relates to edible plant species that can be
grown in a tropical enviroment - that's ALL species that can be grown
in that zone and not just a list of plants related to that
Is anyone aware of a resource, either book or (pref) web based that
would enable me to view plants that can perform in a climate that
averages 30 degree's year round and has 2 distint seasons - Hot and
Dry and Hot and Wet/Humid - roughly a 50/50 split.
The pfaf site enable me to search by 'Tropics' - but declares itself
inaccurate in this area and by region - 'Central America' in my case,
but does not enable me to fully appreciate all possible species that
could be grown in this taxing enviroment.
Any direction/advice would be appreciated,

grown in the tropics and there are several good
sources of info on the Net (but nothing like the
PFAF database). I am currently working on an
extension of the PFAF database for other climates
(I�m trying to find some land in Portugal). Currently
I can�t use my computer so I haven�t got all URLs
Fruits of Warm Climates - Julia F. Morton
This is on the �New Crop Resource Online Program�
�California Rare Fruit Growers� website, again fruits.
