Subtropical crops

The category “subtropical crops” refers to plants that generally grow in areas with a subtropical climate. The database currently classifies agricultural crops in 3 categories (tropical, subtropical, temperate), but many crops belong to more than one of these categories.

The subtropics are located roughly between the tropics and the temperate zone, which corresponds with the area between latitude 23.5° (the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn) and latitude 35° north and south of the Equator.

Subtropical climates have often warm to hot summers and cool to mild winters with infrequent frost.
