The best tropical fruits can transport you to a paradise of white sand beaches and waving palm trees, all in one juicy bite. And you don't even need to take a trip to the tropics to find them – you can just stop by your local grocery store. These delicious pieces of produce can be enjoyed many ways, whether peeled and eaten fresh or blended into decadent smoothies and desserts. Many good tropical fruits are staple ingredients throughout the summer picnic season in fruit salads.

Which tasty treat should sit at the top of this list of the best tropical fruits? Bananas are a popular choice. Rich in potassium, bananas are great for muscle repair after a tough workout, but they also make a great snack on any busy day. Avocados are used in savory dishes like guacamole, but they are actually a fruit. Pineapple is another delicious tropical fruit, although you have to work to cut through its prickly rind to reach the sweet yellow interior. Or perhaps you favor more exotic treats like the pitaya, or dragonfruit, prized for its vivid pink skin and mild flavor.

It's up to you to determine which tropical fruit is the best. Vote up your favorites and add any top tropical fruits that are missing.
