Q.Container Fruit Trees

Anonymous added on March 12, 2014 | Answered

I would like to plant some fruit trees in containers. I live in San Diego and plan to plant the trees on the west side of the house. I would like lemon trees, grapefruit, orange, lime, nectarine, pomegranate, avocado. I don’t care if the tree is deciduous but would like something that produces some fruit and is decorative in a pot.

All of these, except for the nectarine, will do well in containers where you live. If you want to grow nectarine (or peaches), you will need to find a variety that is suited for your area. Peaches and nectarines need a certain amount of cold to bloom, and you will need to look for a low chill variety. You will also need to make sure you can give your container fruit trees enough water. They will need watering daily most of the time.
