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.

Actually there is quite a lot of tropical fruit wich have some salt tolerance. I've seen Cashews growing directly on the seafront. There is Ximenia americana, a little plum-like fruit, which I've seen growing on the beach. And there will be lots more...

sapodilla is supposed to be salt tolerant, as well as annona salzmanii as the name suggests (very rare).
