What Kind Of Fruit Can I Grow Indoors?

Jan 23, 2008
Most experienced gardeners are aware of certain trees that have been designed to grow successfully indoors. In particular, indoor fruit trees have gained in popularity and prominence. These dwarf citrus varieties are appealing to any level of gardener and instill a sense of pride and accomplishment when the tree produces a bountiful crop of fruit.

Most container gardeners are aware of the Meyer lemon tree, given its hearty nature and prolific fruit yield. Given the success of the Meyer, more and more dwarf citrus varieties are now available, and perfect for indoor gardeners. Let's take a closer look at five varieties now available from online sources.

Key Lime - A hearty specimen that's quite appropriate for growing indoors, the key lime tree produces limes that are somewhat smaller than limes you'd normally see. Some claim they're a bit sweeter than regular limes, and we'd agree.

Ponderosa Lemon - Maybe they called this variety the Ponderosa because everything is big on a ponderosa. And that's the case with these lemons. They're positively huge, weighing in at as much as two pounds each. Let them grow and ripen on the tree and don't be tempted to pick them too soon. Don't worry, the branches will hold the fruit!

Washington Navel Orange - Yes, orange trees can be grown indoors! The Washington Navel is unique in that it produces fruit in the winter. The oranges are seedless, another bonus. They are medium size, and very sweet.

Calamondin Tree - What's a calamondin? Calamondins, native to southeast Asia, have been deemed part of both the lime and orange family. These trees are fragrant and produce fruit year around. And yes, they actually taste like a cross between a lime and orange. Delicious!

Fingered Citron - Probably the most unique variety of indoor fruit tree we've seen, the fingered citron produces pods of fruit that look like a person's hand. We were struck by the delightful fragrance of this tree, and also by its prolific nature. The citron is similar to lemon, but just a bit milder.

These are just a few types of indoor citrus trees that are available for container growing. Consider these trees for the beginning gardener, as they are quite easy care and their production of fruit instills gardening confidence and pride! Indoor citrus trees are generally shipped all year around, to even the coldest climates.
