Just fruit, or vegetables too? Thereís a lot of salt-tolerant vegetables, but fruits are mostly trail nibbles. Off the top of my head, I recall the following fruits: Pigface (Carpobrotus glaucescens, a little dragonfruit-like thing that supposedly tastes like a slightly salty sweet fig), Cocoplum, and Coconut. Ximenia and Cut Nut might be salt-tolerant as well, but Iím not sure, I gotta re-check. Thereís more salt-tolerant fruits out there, but Iíd have to check my files to remember them, and my computerís out of commission for the moment (Iím on a phone typing this).

Not sure of the accuracy of this list but do know of Tamarind growing right on a beach.
