They can be planted near each other, but be aware that if one of those plants contracts a disease, then they all will, since they are all closely related.

If you are certain that you can keep infection out, then it can be safe to plant them together. Just keep in mind that each plant in the same family that is put them increases the likelihood of a widespread infection that can kill the whole plot.
