Post Condo Dwelling Fruit Planting
Possible to plant some kind of fruit plant on the balcony of a condo?

I guess tomatos might be possible.

Any ideas on any fruit plants that can fit on a condo balcony.

Thanks - Sail - Hawaii

Yes, you can.....many fruit trees can be grown in containers.

I personally am starting to experiment with apples on dwarfing root stock and growing in a container in my back yard.

Containers need special soil, special watering and special care.

However, in my opinion, container gardening is the wave of the future for city dwellers. Why? Not just for reduced space....but because for those of us troubled by the latest pest, all you need to do is put a net over the tree after pollination time (or a couple weeks before harvest, depending on the fruit)......and you solve the problem of keeping the fly, moth, or pest away from your fruit....and this can be done easily with container fruit.

Thanks for the information. Being in Hawaii condo/apt living
is the way to go for most of us because of housing pricing.

Would be nice to know the fruit you are
eating was cultivated properly under your own supervision.

again Thanks, Sail
