One consequence of the recent push to develop a scheme theory in tropical geometry has been the development of a tropical commutative algebra. This starts with the commutative algebra of semirings, but in order to get a theory that interacts with geometry, we are lead to impose some combinatorial, matroid-theoretic, conditions. I will introduce these ideas, and discuss the current state of our understanding.
