(Durian and rambutan have two growing  seasons in some areas).  

Note: The availability of these fruits will vary.  While mango season begins early in the Philippines and Thailand - in March and April respectively - they normally do not start arriving in North America until May. In some areas of North America, certain types of tropical fruit can be grown locally and are available year-round. Both mangoes and litchis, for example, flourish in the hot Florida climate.
