Container grown fruit trees zone 10

epiprenDecember 5, 2008

I have a south-east facing balcony in zone 10. What kind of fruit trees are possible to grow in containers? I'm thinking of orange, tangerine, persimmon, and pomegranate. Would these grow in 18-20" containers?

Any and all info, links, personal experience would be helpful. Thanks!

Hi Epipren,

I am in zone 7 and I can definitely confirm that pomegranate, orange, and tangerine trees grow in containers. Not sure about the measurements but give it a try. Plants can only grow as big as you allow them. Happy growing!

Hi tiffaney,

Thanks for the encouragement. I like pictures, do you have any you can post? I have the containers in storage. I'll get the sizes and post.
