This paper provides an overview of what is known about edible fruit and nuts in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Firstly, a case is made for why there needs to be more effort on research and development on fruit and nuts in PNG, focusing on both the domestic and overseas markets. A broad overview is given on current knowledge about fruit and nuts, including the species grown, where they grow, their altitudinal range, the population growing each species and number of trees per household. Aspects of production, consumption and marketing that are reviewed include crop agronomy, pest and disease problems, production levels, changes over time, general marketing constraints, consumption and consumer demand. Lastly, some main papers that review fruit and nut species in PNG are listed.
