Mango. This delicious fruit comes in many varieties. Bombay, East Indian and St. Julian (Julie) mangoes all have their fans. Trees that bear the more 'common' or 'stringy' mangoes proliferate throughout the Jamaican countryside.

Cherry. The Jamaican cherry does not resemble the cherries on the North American Continent. They are, however, sweet, popular with children, and make a refreshing drink.

Almond trees often grow near the coast in Jamaica. The fleshy outside is edible, as well as the nut on the inside.
