A year or so ago I read Growing Tasty Tropical Plants in Any Home, Anywhere: (like lemons, limes, citrons, grapefruit, kumquats, sunquats, tahitian oranges, barbados … black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla, and more…) and I loved it. I’ve had lemon trees for quite a while, but after reading this book I wanted to grow a few other things. Thanks to this book I found Logee’s Greenhouse, they specialize in edible houseplants, these are dwarf varieties of plants that do well in pots and produce fruit at a much smaller size than their normal counterparts.
What did I get? A black fig, dwarf avocado, dwarf banana, dwarf mango, meyer lemon and a dwarf guava.
I potted up most of them already, the banana I might plant in the back garden and dig it up this fall. Hopefully I’m on my way to producing delicious tropical fruit in my windowsills. I’ll keep you posted on how they do.
