Fruit trees are an excellent choice for an indoor plant that is both ornamental and tasty. Numerous miniature plants can thrive in your living room, and you can even grow fruit there in a large pot. Gardeners who are tempted to start indoor fruit trees from seed should be aware that these plants tend to provide fruit of lower quality and take longer to mature than grafted trees. You might be wondering just which fruits you should start with if you've never produced your own fruit before. The following fruits can be grown indoors with relative ease.
Calamondin Orange - The resilient citrus grows particularly well indoors. It's a great option if this is your first time trying to plant fruit trees at home. Use a little larger pot and somewhat acidic, loamy, quick-draining soil to encourage the development of strong roots. Water when top inch or so of potting mix is dry. Allow them daily exposure to the sun for a number of hours.
Goji Berries - It is a little berry with a delicious flavour that is vitamin-rich. To ensure they receive enough sunlight, these need to be put in a south-facing window or given a grow light. Although goji trees can withstand drought, they won't tolerate damp feet, so let the potting mix air dry completely before watering it once more.
Avocado - They are frequently produced indoors, usually from seed. The most typical way to grow these from seed is to dangle them over a glass of water with the bottom half submerged by inserting toothpicks into them. Put them in a location with at least six hours of direct sunlight, put them in a quick-draining potting mix, and avoid letting them sit in water. You'll probably need to prune these trees because of how big they get as they age.
Fig Tree - This fruit is sweet and wonderful, almost like candy. These prefer a lot of sunlight, so put them in a south-facing window or add an LED grow light to help them. While they may endure brief periods of drought, it is recommended to prevent the whole drying out of their potting soil; on the other hand, do not allow them to sit in water. Just remember to periodically check the potting mix by lifting the pot and weighing it, using a moisture meter, or by inserting your finger into the potting mix.
Olive Tree - It is a beautiful tree with almost delicate-looking leaves. These receive a lot of light, but not direct sunlight or the leaves will be burned. It is recommended to let the soil completely dry up before watering these because they are native to a dry climate. Additionally, unlike the other trees on this list, olive trees do not require higher humidity, making them slightly simpler to maintain. If you don't have six feet of vertical space available where you want to install an olive tree, you might need to prune it.
