22 Fruit Trees & Plants That Can Grow in Containers


Growing fruit trees and plants in containers is a great way to enjoy this fun and rewarding hobby even with limited or no yard space. Even if you are fortunate to have enough land to accommodate a tree, planting in containers comes with many benefits.

Some of the fruit trees and plants that can grow in containers include various citrus and stone fruit trees, bananas, avocadoes, strawberries, and watermelons. Most fruit trees and plants can grow in containers, though smaller plants and dwarf tree varieties are easier to care for this way.

We’ve got 22 options of fruit trees and plants listed here that you can plant in containers at home, along with all the know-how you need to do so. We will also take a look at all the benefits that come with planting fruit trees in containers rather than planting them in the ground.

Apple Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelModerate
Preferred ClimateTemperate / Warm (differs with variety)
Sunlight Requirements6 Hours
Recommended Dwarf RootstocksBud-9, M-27, M-26, M-9, G-16, P-22

Growing an apple tree from a seed is not the best way to go with this plant. Instead, you will want to find a semi-dwarf or dwarf grafted tree grown on a rootstock. These trees do not often grow beyond eight feet (2.4 meters) in height, making them suitable for growing in containers.

A self-pollinating variety will be required if you only wish to have one apple tree; otherwise, at least two will be required to cross-pollinate to produce fruit.

You may also wish to consider the chilling period your tree requires to set flowers. Apple trees are one fruit plant that needs cold weather annually to produce fruit properly. If you live in an area with harsh winters, choose a high chill variety to improve fruit productivity.

Apricot Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateHot, Arid
Sunlight Requirements8 Hours
Recommended VarietiesAlfred, Stark Golden Glo, Tomcott, New Large Early, Isabelle, Flavourcot, Stella, Moorpark, Goldcott

Apricot trees live long lives and will faithfully produce fruit annually for six to eight decades after its first bloom. Planting these trees in containers will allow your tree to be passed on in the family if so desired.

You can dwarf any apricot tree by pruning it back and keeping it in a smaller container, although there are dwarf varieties available. When growing this way, keep the soil moist, provide plenty of sunshine, and prune the tree twice a year—in the spring and then in the summer—for best results.

Avocado Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateSemi-Tropical
Sunlight Requirements6 Hours
Recommended Indoor VarietiesPinkerton, Holiday, Wurtz (aka Little Cado), Mexicola
Recommended Dwarf and Self-Fertile VarietiesBacon, Reed, Gwen, Fuerte, Hass, Pinkerton, Zutano

Avocados are easily one of the healthiest fruits overall, and dwarf varieties take up very little space. They make for wonderful houseplants with their beautiful, glossy leaves, and many varieties will grow successfully indoors as well.

Choose larger containers even for dwarf avocado varieties and use loose soil, such as decomposed granite or sandy loam, to ensure plenty of room for the long and quick-growing roots. Containers should have several drainage holes, and it is suggested to use gravel at the bottom of the container to enhance drainage further.

Bananas

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateTropical
Sunlight Requirements8 Hours
Recommended Dwarf Varieties (also suitable indoors)Red, Cavendish, Brazilian, Jamaican, Rajapuri, Williams Hybrid, Gran Nain, Lady Finger

As banana trees are tropical plants, they love getting lots of sunlight, and they enjoy the heat, but they are fond of humidity as well. When considering a spot for your banana tree, choose a place that gets sun throughout most of the day and is sheltered from the wind.

Dwarf varieties should definitely be considered in growing bananas indoors or in climates where you may need to move the plant indoors for warmth during the winter months. You may wish to consider a dwarf variety regardless, as many feel the banana of a dwarf tree is much tastier than the average grocery store varieties.

If you want to grow ornamental bananas, consider varieties such as Ensete ventricosum, Musa ornata, or Musa sikkimensis—aka Red Tiger.

Blackcurrants

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateCool / Moderate
Sunlight Requirements 6 – 8 hours Full Sun / Shade-tolerant
Recommended RootstocksKernel, Black Pearl, Green Haze, Pygmy

Blackcurrants are a wonderfully tart, dark purple berry that are rich in Vitamin C. They can be used in pies or smoothies and make for delicious jams and jellies. Fresh blackcurrants should be eaten within days of harvest or kept frozen until they are ready to be eaten.

These plants will benefit from being pruned while dormant during the late fall and winter months. Blackcurrants are best produced on younger wood, so you should prune older branches to leave room for newer branches to thrive. Repot to trim roots and replace old soil every two to three years.

Cherry Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelModerate
Preferred ClimateDepends on variety
Sunlight Requirements6 Hours Full Sunlight
Recommended Varieties (Self-Pollinating)Stella, Sweetheart, Morello, Nabella, Lapins, Sunburst North Star, Duke

Most types of cherry trees need another cherry tree nearby for the flowers to be pollinated. If this is not suitable for you, you will need to find a self-pollinating type instead. Don’t fret though, because there are plenty of self-pollinating cherry tree options such as the Sweet Cherry and Japanese Cherry varieties. Dwarf trees are ideal for growing in a container; however, they will not produce as much fruit as a regular sized tree.

Fig Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy
Preferred ClimateModerate
Sunlight Requirements8 Hours
Recommended Varieties  Blanche (aka Italian honey fig), Lattarula, White Marseille, Brown Turkey (aka Aubique Noire or Negro Largo), Celeste (aka Honey, Sugar, Malta, or Violette), Ventura

If your only understanding of what fig tastes like comes from having eaten Fig Newton cookies, you should know you are missing out. The flavor of a fresh, ripe fig is much more intense and practically ambrosial. There are plenty of varieties that will grow well in containers, and bigger is most definitely better when it comes to the container choice for this tree.

Fig trees crave sunlight, so pick a place where they will get as much exposure as possible.

Gooseberries

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateCool / Moderate
Sunlight RequirementsPrefer Full Sun / Shade-Tolerant
Recommended VarietiesWhite Lion, King of Trumps, Red Triumph, Invicta

Gooseberries come in several varieties, ranging in color from pale pink to deep red to dark black. These plants are not very picky about their sun exposure, with only a few hours of sunlight needed every day to produce fruit. Shady conditions are well tolerated by mature bushes wherein tender, juicy fruit is still produced, and they will do well even under other garden trees.

Guava

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy
Preferred ClimateTropical
Sunlight Requirements8 Hours Full Sun
Recommended VarietiesTropical (Psidium guajava), Strawberry (Psidium lucidum), Pineapple (Feijoa Sellowiana)

There are dozens of guava varieties to choose from, but there are three types in particular when it comes to this exotic fruit that are best suited for being grown in containers.

Tropical guavas will grow as tall as 15 feet (6 meters) and produce very juicy fruit. Strawberry guavas grow into a shrub-like tree with a maximum height of 12 feet (3.7 meters) and produce a fruit that is more tart by comparison. Pineapple guavas grow as tall as tropical guavas, except the trunks will twist and contort marvelously. They are also the most frost-tolerant variety and produce citrus fruit.

Lemon Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateTropical / Subtropical
Sunlight Requirements 8 Hours – Full Sun Ideal
Recommended VarietiesDwarf Meyer, Improved Dwarf Meyer, Dwarf Poderosa, Lisbon

Lemon trees are subtropical and prefer warm climates. They will also tolerate drought. However, they cannot handle cold temperatures. Lemon trees will become inactive once temperatures fall below 55 degrees Fahrenheit (~13 degrees Celsius), and fruits die within half an hour of being subjected to temperatures of 26 to 28 degrees Fahrenheit (-3 to -2 degrees Celsius).

If you’re growing lemons in such cold conditions, we recommend that you fertilize and prune your lemon tree early in the season to stimulate growth and development; this will also strengthen and harden the tree to better withstand the threat of cold weather.

Lime Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateSubtropical
Sunlight Requirements8 Hours, Full Sun Ideal
Recommended VarietiesTahiti Persian, Kaffir, Mexican aka Key Lime

Lime trees are a great option as they are a bit sturdier and more tolerant than other citrus varieties. Growing them in containers and indoors, allows you to protect them from harsh climates and control conditions so that they can thrive.

Dwarf varieties are recommended if you are growing the tree in a container, however, many standard varieties can have their growth stunted with pruning and confined container size.

Nectarines

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy
Preferred ClimateModerate / Warm
Sunlight Requirements6 Hours Full Sun
Recommended VarietiesZephyr, Jade, Honey Royale

A nectarine is basically a peach without the fuzz. Nectarine trees need to be watered quite often, but they still require well-draining soil. Be sure to provide frequent fertilizer applications during the growing season to encourage flowers and the production of fruit. You can also prune the plant to encourage branches to sit low and horizontal, which will cause a shrub-like shape.

Orange Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelModerate
Preferred ClimateSubtropical
Sunlight Requirements8 Hours Full Sun
Recommended VarietiesSatsuma Mandarin, Moro Blood Orange, Valencia, Washington Navel, Honeybells, Hamlin

Orange trees are a great choice for indoor growing, particularly because they are self-pollinating. These trees need plenty of sun and water, and practices like fertilizing and pruning are necessary for cultivation. 

Heavy pruning is not advised, however, as orange wood is naturally strong enough to bear its heavy fruit. Proper pruning of an orange tree will still include pruning sprouts, particularly those coming from the trunk, as well as dead or otherwise weakened and crossed branches. The best time for pruning is late winter or before springtime.

Like its fellow citrus trees, orange trees will naturally drop immature fruit around late spring or early summer, so there is no need to thin the fruits. It can take upwards of six to eight months for oranges to ripen fully, and they stop ripening once picked, so be sure to wait until they are ready. Picked oranges will be good for several weeks if kept at cool temperatures.

Peach Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy
Preferred ClimateModerate / Warm
Sunlight Requirements6 Hours
Recommended Dwarf VarietiesGolden Glory, El Dorado, Honey Babe, Nectar Babe, Necta Zee

You won’t find peach trees with a dwarf rootstock because this fruit tree has varieties that will grow smaller naturally—that is, without grafting. They are known as “natural dwarfs” and will only grow to a maximum of six feet (two meters) and even smaller when grown in a container. The fruit that is produced, however, is still full size and delicious.

Peaches typically require upwards of five hundred “chill hours,” so if you live in a warmer climate, you will need to select a low-chill tree variety to produce fruit successfully.

Pear Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateCold, Wet
Sunlight Requirements6 Hours
Recommended Varieties (Self-fertile)Colette Everbearing, Conference, Durondeau, Stark Honeysweet
Recommended RootstocksOHxF69 (semi-dwarf), OHxF333 (semi-dwarf), Provence Quince BA-29C (dwarf)

Choosing a dwarf variety is essential for growing pear trees in containers, as the standard size is not suitable for small spaces. In general, most varieties prefer a climate with a cold winter and cool summers. However, the Provence Quince BA-29C rootstock, for example, does not tolerate colder conditions as well as other options. Make sure you keep the tolerance limits and the temperature needs in mind when choosing the right variety for your home garden.

Pineapples

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateTropical
Sunlight Requirements6 Hours
Recommended VarietiesAbacaxi, Queen, Red Spanish, Smooth Cayenne, Hilo (compact variety of Smooth Cayenne)

Native to the Caribbean as well as South and Central America, the pineapple plant makes for a lovely addition to any garden.

To get started, simply use the top of a store-bought pineapple, which will root readily with proper preparation and planting. With the right care, you should see a pineapple develop in three to four years, so patience is key.

Pomegranate

Growing Difficulty LevelModerate
Preferred ClimateWarm, Arid
Sunlight Requirements8 Hours
Recommended Dwarf Varieties (Fruit-Bearing)Nana, Provence, State Fair
Recommended Dwarf Varieties (Ornamental)Flore Pleno, Madame Legrelle

Pomegranates can be grown alone as they are self-pollinating. These plants are also relatively hardy and usually bear their sweet, juicy fruits within two years. Pomegranate trees also make for an attractive ornamental plant with their glossy, deciduous leaves and red-orange blossoms that bloom prior to fruiting.  

Plum Trees

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateTolerates Most Climates
Sunlight Requirements6 Hours
Recommended RootstocksCitation, St. Julien

Dwarf plum trees will grow up to 10 feet (3 meters) and semi-dwarfs up to 15 feet (4.5 meters). The rootstock cultivars used will vary greatly in terms of quality of fruit produced as well as tolerance to moist soil and resistance to disease.

The Citation plum, a semi-dwarf, is considered a superior rootstock according to research out of the University of California. It is tolerant of overly moist or wet soil, capable of resisting the root-knot nematode, produces sweet fruit that bears early, and is winter-hardy.

Raspberries

Growing Difficulty LevelModerate
Preferred ClimateCold / Moderate
Sunlight Requirements8 Hours Full Sunlight
Recommended Varieties (Summer-Bearing)Boyne, Cascade Delight, Killarney, Raspberry Shortcake, Royalty
Recommended Varieties (Ever-Bearing)Anne, Dorman Red, Fall Gold, Heritage, Jewel, Joan J, Polka, September

Raspberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C and dietary fiber, and many health practitioners believe they can help prevent disease. Additionally, all raspberry varieties are self-pollinating, so only one bush is needed to produce fruit; however, bees are still best for the job when available.

There are summer-bearing raspberry bushes and ever-bearing (aka autumn-bearing) raspberry bushes. Each has their own particular needs for proper growth, so be sure to look into the specific variety you choose. You may wish to consider a mix of both types to maximize your raspberry harvest year-round.

Strawberries

Growing Difficulty LevelModerate to Hard
Preferred ClimateTemperate to Tropical, Varies with Variety
Sunlight Requirements6 – 10 Hours Full Sun
Recommended Wild VarietiesBaron Solemacher, Alexandria, Yellow Wonder

Growing strawberries successfully takes a bit of effort, but a well-maintained plant will produce a relatively large harvest after two or three years. They require a long stretch of full-sun exposure during the growing season—up to 10 hours daily is ideal. You may wish to consider using a grow lamp when weather or climate prevents this from being possible.

You can keep any strawberry plant from spreading by containing it, and with over 200 wild and cultivated varieties to choose from, there is one for every climate. Increase your chance for success and choose a variety best suited for the area you live in.

Tomatoes

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy
Preferred ClimateTropical
Sunlight Requirements6 – 8 Hours Full Sun
Recommended VarietiesPatio Princess, BushSteak, Celebrity, Tumbling Tom, Sun Sugar

Just about any variety of tomato will grow successfully in a container with the proper set up, so you are free to choose whatever you please. These plants grow very rapidly under favored conditions, often doubling their mass every couple of weeks.

Tomatoes are tropical plants that prefer temperatures under 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius) during the day and 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius) at night. Anything higher than these temperatures will result in stress for your tomato plant.

Tomatoes love the sun and will take as much as they can get, for better or worse. Healthy exposure to the sun will produce a happy, healthy tomato.

However, if the occasional shade is not provided (and/or if watering is insufficient), tomatoes could suffer from a discoloration known as sunscald. This can lead to a hardening and, in some cases, rotting of the fruit. Proper pruning techniques and growing varieties with fuller foliage will help prevent this issue.

Watermelons

Growing Difficulty LevelEasy to Moderate
Preferred ClimateWarm, Wet
Sunlight Requirements6 Hours
Recommended Compact VarietiesEarly Moonbeam, Moon and Stars, Sugar Baby, Crimson Sweet, Jubilee, Golden Midget, Millennium, Orange Sweet, Solitaire, Jade Star

Grow a watermelon plant from a seed in a 5-gallon (19 L) container or larger to give enough room for the plant to thrive. Watermelons grow quickly and need lots of water but be sure to avoid using dirt from the garden for potting as this generally compacts easily, making development difficult. Watermelon plants thrive in loamy soil that is well-drained and well-aerated.

The dwarf or compact varieties will do better than standard-sized watermelons when grown in a container, though they will produce smaller fruit.

Why Consider Growing Fruit Trees in Containers?

Less Labor and More Flexibility

Planting in containers is typically much easier than planting outside as it often requires less labor. There is no need to spend days or weeks digging holes in your yard. Plus, you aren’t at the mercy of the weather that day, or even what season it is; you can plant whenever you wish.

You don’t need to be committed to where fruit trees and plants live in your garden because when you grow them in containers, you can move them around any time you like. Get a wheeled base to put under the container for additional ease of portability.

Use this to your advantage to provide better sunshine no matter the season. This is great when colder weather moves in, too, as you can transfer your plants that might be placed outside into the warmth of your home. Then, when it is warm again, you can transfer them back outside and into the sunshine.

Finally, if you ever move to a new residence in the future, it is easier to bring your fruit trees and plants that are planted in containers with you, rather than those that are planted in the ground. Simply pack them up and take them with you and continue enjoying fresh fruit wherever you go (Doesn’t necessarily work if you have to fly out to this new residence!).

Less Space, Yet More Variety

The tree cultivars that are best suited to grow in containers are dwarf and ultra-dwarf varieties. They don’t grow as large as standard fruit trees, making them a practical choice for growing in containers. They can provide you with fruit for most of the year, but their small size allows for multiple plants and increased variety even if space is limited.

Luxury of Controlling Your Growing Medium

This method also affords you the luxury of controlling your growing medium from scratch, instead of attempting to enhance the existing soil in your garden or yard. This way, you can better control the nutrients received for each plant.

Which Type of Soil Is Best for Fruit Trees?

Typically, it’s best to use ordinary soil or a mixture of soil with compost for planting in containers. Potting soil is made particularly for container planting, plus it’s readily available at any garden supply store. Avoid using only compost as it tends to dry out much too easily and stay clear of topsoil because it often compacts, which can prevent water from getting down to the tree’s roots.

Which type of potting soil and compost is best may depend on what kind of fruit tree or plant you wish to grow. Citrus trees may benefit from something different than a tomato plant or a fig tree, for example, so you will want to do some research or get advice from a professional grower or garden center on which is best. In general loam soil is a good option for fruit trees and if you want to learn more check out our post on the subject.

Three Things to Consider When Picking a Container for Fruit Trees

Photo by Ammentorp

Size of the Container

Pots and other gardening containers are measured in at least one of two ways: by volume of the container or by the diameter of the opening.

In general, a grafted tree should be planted in a container that is one to two sizes larger than the root ball itself. If you purchased your tree in a smaller container, commonly a 3-gallon (11 L) pot, this would suffice for a short while, but you should consider transferring it into something larger sooner rather than later.

When starting with a small tree or planting a seed, a 5- to 7-gallon (19-26 L) container will do, but you will need to re-pot into something larger before the plant becomes root-bound. If this happens, vertical growth will be stunted, which will then dwarf any tree.

While you may be looking to keep a tree on the smaller side, you want to allow the tree to grow to a particular maturity level first, or fruit production may be compromised.

Often, people choose to grow trees and plants in containers for the benefit of easy mobility. If this is the case for you, a final pot size of around 10-15 gallons (38-57 L)—or 18-22 inches (46-56 cm)—is as ideal as it gets. This will be substantial enough to house the plant to maturity but small enough that you remain capable of moving it around easily.

Container Material

Your container’s material is a great way to showcase design or personal style, and you have several options. For example, you may wish to choose a plastic container as it is often inexpensive, lightweight, and generally resistant to mold and fungi. However, most plastics will also become dull and faded, and let’s face it—cheaper is not often better.

A nice glazed ceramic or terracotta pot will make a great choice in durability, stability, and design, although this does add a good deal of weight to move around.

Drainage of Container

No matter the size or material, your container isn’t acceptable unless it has drainage holes. Many options come equipped with this feature, but sometimes you may need to create them yourself, or you may wish to add more. Retaining moisture in the soil is very important for the tree’s health, but this moisture should be replenished. Soil should not remain overly moist where roots are essentially soaking for long periods of time, as that can cause root rot.

When filling your container, place an initial layer that will encourage good drainage. You can use large pebbles or stones, broken pot pieces, gravel, or whatever you prefer. Then, place a layer of soil mix on that for the fruit tree’s roots to rest upon. A decorative mulch may be used on top to assist in holding moisture if you wish, but it is not generally necessary and is not even advised for certain trees.

Proper Watering for Container-Grown Fruit Trees

This is probably the biggest issue when it comes to growing trees in containers because it requires a good deal of attention. In fact, the failure rate for trees grown in containers is much higher than for trees grown in the ground because trees are watered improperly.

Generally, there is no need to water in the winter when a tree is dormant. However, be prepared to water at least twice a week for the remainder of the year. In sunny, warm weather, daily watering will probably be required. Keep this in mind when planning time away from home, as you may need to ask a neighbor or friend to come by and water your plants while you are away.

Without a healthy water supply, the tree will weaken, making it more susceptible to fungal infections and pest infestation. If your tree looks unhealthy or unhappy, it is often the result of insufficient watering.

There is a common misconception that watering is not needed when the weather is not hot or if it has rained within the week. This holds true for trees planted in the ground, where roots can pull moisture from a wider area around the tree.

However, the surface area of soil in a container is limited. Therefore, it would require a great deal of rain to provide enough in the container. The smaller the container, the more frequently you will have to water.

The amount of water needed will also vary depending on the type of tree you are growing, so make sure you do your research when you select the fruit tree.

Do You Need to Provide Winter Protection for Your Fruit Trees and Plants Grown in Containers?

If you reside in an area where your winter temperatures go below freezing, you will need to provide protection for your tree during this time, if you’re keeping your plant outdoors. Sometimes a thick fleece or otherwise protective covering around the container will suffice to keep freezing air from getting too close to the roots. Other times, you may need to move the tree to the shelter of a garage or shed or even bring it inside your home.

Choosing the Right Fruit Trees for Growing in Containers

Not all fruit trees and plants will grow successfully in containers, though many can. A big factor to consider is the plant’s final size, as most “standard” sized plants grow quite tall with roots that are large and require a great deal of space. For this reason, smaller tree varieties should be chosen for this growing method.

Some fruit trees and plants have varieties that are naturally on the smaller side. However, others have been cultivated to a dwarfed height. When selecting trees that you wish to grow in containers, look for ‘dwarf’ and ‘super-dwarf’ (also called ‘ultra-dwarf’) cultivars as these are best suited for growing in containers. Keep an eye out for the dwarf labels when shopping, as many unlabeled trees can be presumed to be a full-size tree.

The smallest size tree, the super-dwarfs, grow around five feet (1.5 meters) in height on average. This is a perfect size for containers and makes for easy portability as well. Unfortunately, there isn’t a large variety of super-dwarf cultivars available, but they can be found.

Dwarf sized fruit trees are more commonly found and offer more variety to choose from as well. These trees typically grow to be around 6-10 feet (2-3 meters) in height, so they require a bit more space than the super-dwarfs.

Perhaps the best feature of these smaller fruit tree cultivars is that many will still produce full-sized fruit.

Size Labels vs. Rootstock Labels

Not all fruit tree and plant varieties labeled dwarf will necessarily be suitable for life in a container. When searching labels, look for the information referring to the rootstock. The rootstock used for grafting the tree is what determines how large the fruit tree ultimately grows. This is a much more reliable system to use when choosing the right trees.

Closing Thoughts

Growing fruit trees and plants in containers is ideal for those with limited space and is a great option for anyone looking to reap the benefits of caring for such plants. A little more attention and care may be required with this method versus planting outdoors in the ground, but the flexibility it provides is very much worth the time and effort.
