Miami and Florida are well known for being the tropical fruit Mecca of the United States. This is the only place in the continental U.S. where you can find produce like jackfruit at the store, and then a drive about an hour south will lead you to longan groves, fields of dragon fruit, and farm stands where you can sample things like sapodilla, black sapote, egg fruit and so much more!
Though there are dozens of options to try, we picked the top six on our list to tell you a little more about!
