Crops and plants, some wild, include corn, sugarcane, pineapple, mango, lychee, coconut, banana, pepper, bamboo, breadfruit, vanilla, cassava, coffee, papaya, cocoa, chilli, cinnamon, rice and more. In organic farming terminology of so-called companion-planting, this mixed planting situation provides a natural habitat for flora and fauna without the need of unnatural pesticides as single-crop farming methods typically practise elsewhere in the world.
