Growing Apples in Tropics

I am trying to grow apples in hot tropical climate (summers around 85 degrees and winters around 60 degrees) by using manual defoliation to provide rest. My question is – can I expose the plants to direct sun or should they be be put in partial shade?

If you’re looking to get any apples from the trees, then they will require full sun. This is where they get their energy from in order to produce fruit. Also, in shady areas, the trees are less likely to blossom well, which limits fruit as well. As long as the trees receive adequate water, especially in excessively hot or dry conditions, they should be fine.
