Just wondering people’s thoughts here on container growing fruit somewhat compactly on a balcony. Sorry I double posted on another site as well, I am sure that is a faux pas, forgive me! I would like to avoid doing the indoor outdoor shuffle and just leave things on the balcony 99% of the year (can bring on on the very coldest night or two).
I’m assuming south facing balcony will be best, that figs, pomegranates, and citrus will work well. Is that correct? Actually pomegranate probably not that great since won’t really produce that well probably.
I’m wondering if anything else more tropical will do OK out year round outside in a container… like passion fruit, maybe dwarf banana (I know this exists), dwarf avocado, dwarf mango if there are such things… I also like atemoya… and Persian mulberry/nigra but I highly doubt those can be grown compactly and the latter without an insane mess…
I’m also a little concerned that these plants will be less hardy in a container.
I hope to have a real in ground garden in a few years but until then this is more for fun/I guess eventually I can put these plants into ground there as well. Thank you!
