I agree that Purdue has some great resources.  Here's another one from Purdue, slides from a course on tropical horticulture:

Here are another two good online online books for specific tree crops:

One of the largest databases on plants and trees:

http://www.pfaf.org/user/plantsearch.aspx

And

http://www.worldagroforestry.org/resources/databases/agroforestree

you can spend hours if not days going through all the trees and plants at these two sites. they have lots of information on most trees, just take a look at Annona muricata from the worldagroforestry database , a sample:
