Through the Australian Tropical Fruits Portal you can access information about the main tropical and exotic fruit types including characteristics, taste, buying and storing, preparation and serving, and variety details; and link to web sites operated by industry associations and commercial businesses associated with those fruits.
The portal has been established by the Tropical Fruits Industry Partnership Programme (TFIPP). The TFIPP was funded by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF).
The information about tropical and exotic fruit types is mainly sourced from the Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries Queensland publication Tropical Tastes – Fruits, Foods and Flavours of North Queensland and is reproduced with due acknowledgement and authority.
At an industry level, the portal backgrounds the TFIPP program and addresses current issues in the tropical fruits industries.
The Northern Territory Horticultural Association will manage the portal on behalf of the tropical and exotic fruit industries. The Rambutan & Tropical Exotic Growers Association will maintain the content on the portal for all industries.
