I would honestly say, as someone who doesn't like the heat that even the tropical rainforest climates are somewhat redeemable. They have a lot of growing potential in things like lychee, Turkish cap hibiscus, coconut palms, cassava, yam vines, breadfruit, pineapples, mangoes, and coffee to name a few. Besides that, there's like dozens more plants that are not necessarily edible but look nice too, but this is subjective as I do not like everything tropical.

Deserts seem to be mostly crappy climates, and a lot of these areas are warm enough to grow said things listed above, but it is not only too dry, but way too hot as well. A high of 110°F is not necessarily what I call optimum growing weather, but that is what happens in deserts. The Sonoran Desert, I must say, is by far my most favorite desert, since there is a species of a tree that can do photosynthesis with its bark!

My vote goes to tundra biomes and maybe taigas. Tundra biomes have pretty much almost zero qualities about these places. They are cold about 3/4ths of the year; Maine seems like a paradise in comparison. Also, the obvious thing too is there is no possibility of growing trees; even for some borderline areas like Vardø have an extremely low growing season, even for now with 1991-2020 normals. 2 months doesn't really cut it, even if Köppen would think so. What IS there to grow besides grass for yaks and oxen?? I mean, the coasts of Finnmark are pretty optimum for fishing industries, but it does not make a good excuse to have large settlements.
