1. Citrus trees
You can grow lemons, mandarins, and oranges at home. These fruits do not require too much care, but the yield is excellent! They will give fruit several times a year and will fill your house with an indescribable exotic aroma during their flowering period.
2. Apple tree
Indeed, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! And really, apples contain many microelements and vitamins, which are necessary for a healthy life. However, when buying apples in stores, you can never be 100% sure they were grown without any chemical supplements. If you are concerned about your health, you can grow a small apple tree right in a container at home. Give your tree nutrients, regularly water it, and provide with the right temperature and light. It will make you happy with tasty juicy fruit in 3-5 years. Don't forget that an apple tree requires additional care during the fructification period.
Pomegranate is tasty, healthy, and easy to grow in a container. First, its roots are quite shallow, which allows it to grow excellently at home. Secondly, a pomegranate tree does not require special care. In addition to giving delicious fruits, this tree can be used for decoration purposes thanks to its exquisitely beautiful blossoms.

4. Cherry tree
Cherry trees are very compact and can perfectly decorate any balcony. During the blossoming period, the cherry tree grows gentle and beautiful flowers that will fill your house with a delicate scent. At the same time, the fruits are in no way inferior to those grown in the garden. During the flowering period, don't forget to protect your cherry tree from birds. You can use mesh to do that. If you give your tree enough water, light, and quality soil, you will enjoy your own berries!
Contrary to popular belief, pineapples do not grow on palm trees. The tasty fruits grow on a herbaceous plant. You can grow a pineapple in a pot or container that can also serve as a unique home decoration. Although the fruits will not be as big as those sold in stores, they will be equally tasty and healthy. You can enjoy pineapple fruits 3-4 years after seeding.

An avocado tree does not require special conditions. But don't forget that the tree basically serves as decoration, and it's not that easy to get this tree to bear fruit. The tree has a luxurious crown that filters the air from dust and harmful gases.
Of all fruits and berries, strawberries are the easiest to grow at home. Even an inexperienced gardener can cope with them. After all, you don't even need a large pot - small containers are more than enough. Healthy soil, sufficient light, and water are all that you need to give your strawberry plants to enjoy sweet and juicy strawberries almost all year.
