Your Guide to Growing Fruit Trees Indoors in Pots 

Growing fruit trees indoors is a great way to enjoy fresh fruit without outdoor space. Use this tutorial to get started:  

Mini fruit trees are easy to grow inside and in pots.Choose indoor and climate-appropriate fruit trees. Popular trees include lemon, lime, orange, fig, dwarf apple or pear, and dwarf avocado.  

Choose the Right Fruit Tree


Make sure the containers you choose have adequate room for your fruit tree's root system and can drain properly. Large pots, half-barrels, or containers made especially for trees are also excellent choices.  

Container and Soil


Your fruit trees should be planted in an area where they can get at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight each day. Windows with a southerly orientation provide the most exposure to sunlight.  

Placement and Light


Make sure the soil is constantly damp but not soggy. When the top inch of soil appears dry to the touch, water your fruit trees.  

Watering and Feeding


Fruit trees need regular pruning to maintain shape, remove dead or diseased branches, and promote healthy development. Pruning also adjusts tree size for interior use.  

Pruning and Training


Look out for typical indoor pests including spider mites, scale insects, and aphids. Regularly check your fruit trees, and take quick action to eradicate any infections.  

Pest and Disease Management


You may need to hand-pollinate blooms with a little brush or cotton swab for citrus or avocado plants that need cross-pollination. To promote fruit set, gently transfer pollen between flowers.  



Compared to outdoor plants, fruit trees cultivated indoors could take longer to yield fruit. Have patience and keep up the necessary upkeep and attention.
