Tropical Collection

This collection focuses on plants with mainly culinary interest, with papaya, banana, mango, lemon, orange, cinnamon, vanilla and many others.  We also have plants that are of industrial or other uses, from rubber to ramie, as well as culturally significant plants that may also provide food or other uses. From chrysanthemum to cinnamon, the history of our species cannot be told without illustrations including many of the plants in our collection.
