I live in an apartment and I have a very small community garden space for some vegetables. I do have a patio and was wondering if there is any fruits that are able to be grown in a container. I am in Ohio if that makes a difference.

Thanks!

Here's fruit which can be grown in a container.


It's a Calamondin Orange Tree. Well, calling it a tree is not quite right. It's only about as big as a chilli plant. The fruit is sour with a little bit of sweetness. You can eat it raw or make it into a drink.

Tomatoes are always a good choice for potted veggies. Ginger will grow quite well, all you do is bury it under a couple inches of dirt and keep the soil moist and it's pretty carefree. If you like herbs, try growing some parsley, sage, thyme and basil in small pots. You can even grow a few potatoes and carrots if you have large enough pots.

Straw berries, black berries, melons and raspberries take well to growing in containers as far as I know. Try them. You can grow hybrid pawpaw or papaya which are short and produce fruit in a short time.. 6 months to a year.

It's surprising but I've heard that it's possible to grow banana tree in a container - it just have to be a very big container and the plant needs a lot of sunlight.

A dwarf papaya tree sounds like a good idea. I like to eat papayas. I have seen some dwarf papaya trees around here. The ones I have seen are planted in the ground. I suppose there should be no problem in planting them in pots.

I've never had any luck with anything but banana trees. The only other thing I have tried is blueberries but I can't grow them in the ground either so it's not saying much.
