Tropical fruits are an important source of food for people living in tropical regions, where the temperatures can soar above 40 degrees Fahrenheit (11 Celsius).
While fruits like mangoes, peaches and plums are edible in moderation, they are also extremely poisonous, and can kill.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says fruit grown in tropical countries is one of the most important food crops for people in the United States.
A 2015 study published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene found that 1.7 million Americans died each year from eating tropical fruits.
