Plant These 15 Indoor Fruit Trees For A Year-Round Harvest
Lemon Tree
This is a low-maintenance, evergreen plant with many cultivars. It grows 10 to 20 feet tall in a well-draining potting mix and prefers bright direct or indirect light.
A lemon tree blooms in the spring and is sensitive to the cold. It can’t be grown as a perennial in zones where the temperature drops below 20 degrees Fahrenheit during the year.
Dwarf Nectarine Tree
This tree produces small, peach-like, smooth-skinned fruit. It can grow 4 to 6 feet tall and wide and sports pink flowers and arching skinny leaves.
The dwarf nectarine cultivar does well in a container of well-draining potting mix with bright direct or indirect light. It grows in USDA zones 6 to 9 and blooms in the spring.
Fig Tree
Common fig trees are grown both for their fruit and for their attractive palmate foliage. They thrive in zones 7 to 9 in bright indirect light and well-draining soil.
They grow 2 to 3 feet tall and wide and bloom in the spring, producing small green flowers that become edible figs. Use figs in different foods, dry them, or turn them into jam.
Lady Finger Banana
Also known as dwarf banana trees, they are small enough to keep indoors year-round, but benefit from spending some time outside when it’s warm and humid.
The cultivars bloom in the summer in zones 10 to 12 and can grow up to 9 feet tall. They prefer plenty of regular watering, well-draining soil, and bright to medium indirect light.
Acerola Shrub
The acerola shrub blooms in the summer in zones 9 to 11, producing the Barbados cherry, which is known for its tart flavor and high vitamin C content.
It can grow 10 to 12 feet tall and 10 to 15 feet wide, but will stay short in stature if grown in a container. Keep it warm during the winter and in bright, indirect sunlight.
