A classification of tropical tree crops - particularly those grown for their fruit - is presented, based on: 

  • Branching habit
  • growth rythm

The classification reveals a pattern in the confusing multitude of tree crops; its usefulness is enhanced because of similarities in ecology and fruitfulness of the species within a class.
