Tropical Fruits in the USA Markets

Fig 01- Two kinds of tropical fruits

If you visit any groceries in the USA, you may easily spot tropical fruits. Banana is the most favorite fruit both in America and the world.

Average American consumed banana 27.38 pounds (12.4 kg) per person per year.

Other tropical fruits sold in the markets:

- Avocados
- Pineapples
- Guavas
- Mangoes
- Plantains

Where are these tropical fruits coming from?

Yes, your guess might true that Latin America countries are the main sources not only tropical, but also other fruits.

However, some tropical fruits such as mango and plantains may grow very well in some states of America.

Several states which produce tropical fruits include:

- Georgia
- Florida
- Texas
- California.

We love California plantains and Texas mangoes. We buy plantains almost once a week. We steam or fry the plantains.

Texas or Florida mangoes are abundance in the summer, start from late May every year.

I have noticed that mangoes price quite lower during summer seasons, especially in Mexican and Asian groceries.

Instead of banana, what is your most favorite tropical fruit?

  9. Avacados are a favorite here! Especially with toast and eggs in the morning. It's a plant fat good for me. I try to stay away from banannas since it's too much sugar for me as well as the other fruits.

  15. En la parte Sur y Este de Andalucía, por su clima, se cultiva mucha fruta tropical, por lo que se encuentran por todos los mercados nacionales, como también se exportan al resto de Europa.
    En la Isla española de Canarias se cultivan plátanos de calidad superior desde principios del siglo XV, y de allí fueron los españoles los que lo llevaron a América en 1516.
    Evi, además de las frutas tropicales que tu cita, y que a mi me encantan. En las provincias españolas de Málaga y Granada, se cultivan otras muchas que aunque son originarias de centro América y de Asia, como la papaya, la guayaba, la fruta de la pasión o maracuyá, el níspero, el higo chumbo, la pitahaya, la fruta del dragón, etc. etc.
    Me ha encantado tu entrada...como siempre, amiga Evi.
    Que tengas un buen día.

  16. I love both bananas and mangoes. However, one should be careful about the quantity eaten, as they might add to weight.
    Guavas have a great smell!
