11/07/2017 // Russel Davis // Views

Home gardening is becoming more popular these days, which is largely due in part to its many beneficial effects such as lower food cost and relatively healthier produce. We have prepared an extensive list of easy-to-grow fruits and vegetables to help you kick start your own food garden.

Top 10 easy-to-grow fruits

  1. Apples - An article posted on the Thompson & Morgan website notes that apples vary in size, making it an ideal garden staple. The entry suggests planting two varieties that can pollinate each other if there's ample space in the garden. For smaller areas, it is advisable to try planting the fruit tress in tubs. According to the article, gardeners may choose between the three different varieties of dwarf apples.
  2. Strawberries - Strawberries are among the most versatile fruits as they can either be directly planted into the ground or grown in containers, hanging baskets, flower pouches, and window boxes.
  3. Figs - Figs require a hot, sunny climate to grow. The entry notes that figs grow best when their roots are restricted. This makes the fruit an ideal cultivar among gardeners with limited spaces.
  4. Raspberries - Raspberries are among the hardiest of berries as they require very little attention. According to the article, raspberries are self-supporting and can be grown in containers or in clumps throughout the garden.
  5. Blueberries - Blueberries are also a low-maintenance crop that can be planted in containers. The article cites that blueberries only need an acid soil to thrive, which gardeners can readily purchase from any local gardening store.

  8. Honeyberries - Honeyberries resemble blueberries both in color and nutrient content. Likewise, honeyberries are noted for their relative sturdiness.
  9. Goji berries - This superfood is another tough shrub that grows in almost any sunny area.
  10. Blackberries - Blackberries are a popular cultivar among gardeners as the fruit is known to grow just about anywhere.
  11. Rhubarb - Rhubarb is known for its strong resistance against the coldest of seasons.
