The special features of agriculture in Taiwan

  Taiwan is located along the Tropic of Cancer. Not only with the diversified topography and landforms including high mountains, hills, and plains, it also has sub-tropical and tropical climatic conditions. With this exceptional set of natural conditions, advanced agricultural cultivation and breeding techniques, and the industriousness of farmers, Taiwan can produce a variety of premium agriproducts all year round, including tropical fruits such as bananas, mango, pineapple, papaya, and dragon fruit, and temperate fruits like apples and pears, as well as rice, tea, edamame, Taiwan tilapia, and Phalaenopsis orchids etc. These products are not only provided to citizens, but even  exported to other countries.
