TEMPERATE FRUITS


In geography, temperate latitudes of the globe lie between the tropics and the polar circles. The north temperate zone extends from the Tropic of Cancer at about 23.5 degrees north latitude to the Arctic Circle at about 66.5 degrees north latitude. Regions with a temperate climate are usually characterized by having roughly equally long winters and summers. Temperature extremes are uncommon in temperate climates but do occur in regions also affected by outer limit of their temperature tolerances.

Leaf bearing trees dominate this climate close to the coastal regions and ferns dominate the northern region as well as some inland parts. The apple, pear, cherry, and plum are the most widely grown and eaten, owing to their adaptability. Many other fruits are important regionally but do not figure prominently in commerce. Many sorts of small fruit on this list are gathered from the wild, just as they were in Neolithic times. It includes the varieties like,
