With all of the different fruits out there, finding fruits that are easy to grow isn't easy! In fact, it can be harder than you expect, especially if you are just starting out. I've looked all over and finally compiled a list of fruits that are easy to grow that even a beginner can start a fruit garden with! So, take a look and get out there and garden! Who knows, maybe you'll find out just how awesome your green thumb is!
Figs are actually one of my favorite fruits that are easy to grow and they are oh-so-tasty! If you are a fig-lover but had no idea that they were so easy to grow, you'll be happy to learn more about them! These figs need to be grown against a hot and sunny south/west facing wall. They are best when their roots are restricted and they are perfect to grow in a container. Think about how many recipes you can make with your awesome figs!
Another one of my favorite spring fruits that I can't get enough of are strawberries. Strawberries that are picked right from the garden are absolutely beautiful and they taste so, so good! These fruits should be grown in a container or hanging basket. Super sweet strawberries are best to be picked throughout June and July. Think about how much better strawberry shortcake will taste with your very own home-grown strawberries!
Raspberries are another fruit that are not only easy to grow, but they are so, so good and sweet when you pick them! You can grow these particular berries in clumps throughout your garden or in a container. You can pick these throughout late summer and early fall!
If you're looking to make strawberry rhubarb pie, why not grow your own rhubarb? All you need is a sunny or semi-shady spot in rich and fertile soil and you'll start to see little heads of this particular fruit. Once this fruit settles into the dirt, you don't really need to do anything else! I actually love this particular fruit and it's super easy to grow!
Tomatoes are my favorite in the hot summer – they taste so good! These particular plants are great in a pot or even right in your garden! They need to be in the sun 90% of the time, so keep that in mind when you are growing your tomatoes.
If you are looking for another container fruit plant, you should invest in some blueberries! This particular fruit does need really acidic soil, which you can buy at your local garden center, but once you get the right soil they are low maintenance. The best part? They will come back year after year – if you keep the plant alive!
Finally, the last fruits that are super easy to grow and that are amazing for you are Goji berries! This is a superfood that has a sweet licorice taste. It's basically a shrub that can grow in almost any sunny position at all! Just plant, water and watch your awesome berries grow!
