Dwarf Fruit and Vegetables You Can Grow Anywhere!

Not everyone has a big backyard. Millions of Americans have small gardens and some only have a balcony. Thanks to new plant breeding, there is a plethora of dwarf fruits and vegetables designed for small space gardening. Now everyone can grow delicious, nutritious food wherever they call home.

Homegrown Berries are Berry Good for You

Fresh berries have never been easier to grow. With the Bushel and Berry® homegrown berry collection, all you need is a sunny spot big enough for a container. Patios, decks, front steps, and urban balconies are perfect choices. “They’ve been selected to be simple to grow, beautiful in landscapes, and delicious to eat,” says Layci Gragnani, program manager for the brand collection.

Some favorites are:

Raspberry Shortcake®, a thornless, dwarf raspberry that grows to be 2-3 feet tall and produces sweet mid-summer fruit. Raspberries are low in fat and high in fiber. One serving provides 25% of your daily dose of vitamin C.

Peach Sorbet® blueberry is a four-season showstopper that grows 1½ - 2 feet tall. Spring foliage is peachy pink. In cool climates, the fall color is a rich burgundy. White flowers produce tasty berries that are rich in antioxidants and vitamins. 

Baby Cakes®, is an easy-to-grow, thornless, dwarf, blackberry bush. It grows to be about 3-4 feet tall. Blackberries contain more vitamin E than any other fruit. They are also rich in antioxidants, iron, and vitamins C and A, and fiber.
