Fruits You Didn’t Know You Could Grow in Containers

As you get ready to plant your summer garden you will want to learn more about the fruits you can grow in a container.

When it comes to gardening people often do not realize how many options they have to grow fruit in their garden. Those that opt for a container garden are less likely to think of fruits that they can grow. The good news is that when you opt for a container garden you can grow a lot more fruit than you think and even grow fruits that don’t typically survive in your growing zone because you can move everything inside.

When it comes to fruit that grows well in containers everyone thinks of strawberries. In fact, most people assume strawberries are the only fruit you can grow in a container. These sweet juicy fruits thrive in containers and are the perfect addition to any container garden. Strawberries will come back year after year even when the containers are left to winter outdoors.

The most overlooked option for container gardens is citrus fruits. These fruits typically grow in warm climates but can do fairly well indoors during the winter if you live in a colder area. The blooms will make your home smell amazing. For a good container, choose a dwarf variety and use a larger container.

Citrus isn’t the only tropical fruit you can grow in a container. Dwarf varieties of banana do well in large containers and can overwinter indoors if you keep the house warm. While these can take years to fruit, the large leaves make great filters for the air in your home all winter long.

One of the best fruits to grow in containers is blueberries. These bushy plants thrive in containers and are often grown in farms that specialize in organic blueberries. Blueberries will thrive and can do just fine left outside to overwinter in their containers. This makes blueberries a great option for someone who wants a perennial that doesn’t have to come inside when it gets cold as tropical fruits do.
