Grow Your Own Fresh Fruit With An Indoor Fruit Tree

Jan 15, 2008
One of the latest popular additions to the gardening scene is growing fruit indoors with indoor fruit trees. These small, suited-for-indoors fruit bearing trees are ideal for gardeners of all levels of experience. Even those with very little living space can comfortably fit one of these economical fragrant trees.

Indoor fruit trees are available in wide varieties. Not only are these handsome, fragrant trees ideally suited for indoors, they yield regular size lemons, limes, grapefruits, oranges, and more. You can even own an indoor kumquat tree! If you're worried how tall they grow, don't be ... indoor fruit trees top off at 10 to 12 feet maximum, and only reach that height if they're never pruned.

How Do Growers Ship Indoor Fruit Trees?

Indoor fruit trees are usually shipped from the grower in a standard container, anywhere from 3 to 7 gallon size. Indoor fruit tree growers are able to ship all over the United States at any time of year as indoor fruit trees are quite hardy and durable.

Making Sure Your Indoor Fruit Tree Thrives

Since indoor fruit trees are hardy, they are relatively easy care and suitable for even beginning gardeners. While growers always include specific indoor fruit tree growing instructions, in general there are just a few things to keep in mind. Give your indoor fruit tree plenty of sun exposure, and don't over water. Also, follow specific instructions for your type of indoor fruit tree.

Will I Get Much Fruit From An Indoor Fruit Tree?

You'll normally receive several pounds of fruit from an indoor fruit tree annually. Of course, actual yield depends upon how well the tree is cared for, as well as the specific type of indoor fruit tree you own.

Indoor Fruit Tree Miscellaneous

Sometimes an indoor fruit tree will benefit from spending a few months outdoors, in the warm weather. An indoor fruit tree will enjoy time spent on a patio or balcony. When fall temperatures arrive, bring the tree back indoors. Also, a specially formulated citrus fertilizer is useful. These fertilizers are formulated specially for indoor fruit trees and are available online or via specialty garden centers.
