Suggestions for container fruits
« on: February 23, 2017, 11:36:24 PM »
What are your personal favorite fruits good for growing in containers?
The hardest plants to grow are often those most worth growing.

Miracle fruit works well for me. Also dragonfruit, mandarin, kumquat, lemon(lime), blueberry, strawberry(berries in general), sapodilla,

How big of a container are we talking about? Some people grow banana in containers. Dr. John Yonemoto grows mangos in 200 gallon "containers" in greenhouses in Japan.

Well, I need to fit it in an 8x12 greenhouse that's about 8 feet in height. I can grow mandarin, kumquat, berries, etc. outside as well as dragonfruit. Sapodilla might need to hit the greenhouse. I have one miracle fruit seedling now.

Miracle fruit, Ponderosa lemon tree, and piper nigrum vine are jamming in containers, producing nicely over and over. Also have a Sabara jabo that is growing very well and beautiful in a container, but has not yet flowered. Araza tree seems much happier in a container than it was in-ground. Oh, and my noni fruit tree is in a container, with a tap root going down through a hole and into the ground. Tree fruits like crazy.
