Wonderful idea Tim.

I will be sure to make an entry.

I like this better than my silly poetry contest.

This really encourages people to participate, instead of watching from the sidelines.  I love to see added incentive, for new members to join.  Other than the fact that this place is like a book, that you can ask questions to, and its continually updated.  I consider this forum one of the greatest ways to learn, aside from visiting others gardens in person.

Thanks Tim  :)

So the subject in the photo has to be a fruit or plant of a tropical nature, correct? Your goat photo threw me off.

lololol

the goat who threw you off, and your comment for some reason made me smile.

I guess it's just so random it's hilarious...I keep thinking about that goat, who it's with,what it's thinking, if he'll ever return one day

hahaha

Lol   must have been a good curry dinner for some folks, that's why I said  *** not at all related to tropical fruits *** in my picture.

Yes, photo must be sub/tropical fruit or fruit tree related. 
Both submissions so far are within the rules.  Tomas's picture is perfect.  Null's picture, though showcasing the praying mantis, is related cuz it's sitting on a banana plant.

I think it should be just about the fruit, not the tree.

So now it's just fruits? How about leaves of a tropical plant?  ;D Just giving you a hard time.

Yeah, I'm wondering too....
I was thinking of submitting something along the lines of a fruit tree in flower.
What's that got to do with Jose Andres $10 brussel sprouts?

Don't mean to beat a dead horse but....
If someone submits a photo of a fruit tree and it has flower and fruit on it, how is the judging done.

Is it judged based primarily on the photo as a whole, or is it judged mainly on how the fruit in the photo looks?

The "fruit must be present" criteria eliminates photos I was thinking of that have no fruit on the tree (just a fruiting tree in flower), but now I'm wondering if I should submit something that has really young fruit on it (because I think the photo is nice but if you just look at the fruit it isn't so impressive)

Good question, what if the fruit is still developing and the size of a nickel or smaller? Does it have to be a fruit close to full ripeness?

I thought this was supposed to be an easy giveaway?  ;D

Primarily on the photo as a whole, but fruit(s) must be present.
As long as I can tell it's a fruit.  Does not have to be of of ripe fruits, eg: a cluster of developing avocados will work.

Opuntia sp., 1 ripe fruit with many other fruits at various stages. Just for reference that ripe fruit is about the size of a medium apple. I made sure to get a pad of this plant! Possibly about +300 fruits on the plant as whole, I was unable to get an overview picture (since the Opuntia was overhanging a fence).
