The definition of a "tropical fruit" is a fruit native to a "tropical" area.   So what is considered tropical?  According to information on the web, tropical is a location that is typically Hot and Humid.  For most people, tropical can be considered places like Hawaii, Mexico, Caribbean, South and Central America, just to name a few.  When we say tropical fruits, the masses could agree, we are talking about coconut, passion fruit, papaya, guava, starfruit, pineapple, kiwi, acai, mango and banana.

Tropical fruits get a lot of attention usually during the hotter season's and definitely make an appearance in beverages. Regardless if it's a fruit smoothie or a blended alcohol beverage, tropical fruits provide a unique and sweet flavor that can add depth and interest to an otherwise ordinary beverage.

Not only do tropical fruits taste amazing, but they can provide nutrients that are sometimes overlooked. Fruits are an important source of carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and fiber.  Here at Northwest Naturals we have several blends that use one or more tropical fruits and have been successful in various applications.
