Tropical Fruit Trees For Containers

15 years ago


I apologize for all the questions. But I am so intrigued with all the unusual fruit that is out there. I had no idea most of them even existed. While I'm reading through the different varieties in several of the online nurseries, I've noticed that most of these plants grow very tall.

How are you growing these plants in containers? I'm looking at purchase some grafted plants of the following, but some appear to get very tall. Will I be able to keep them pruned, in containers,growing in my greenhouse, and still get fruits?

Anon, purple (Annona squamosa)

Carambola, grafted(Averrhoa carambola)

Cupuassu (Theobroma grandiflorum)

Durian (Durio zibethinus)

Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus)

Lychee (Litchi chinensis)

Miracle Fruit (Synsephalum dulcificum)

Noni (Morinda citrifolia)

Peanut Butter Fruit (Bunchosia argentea)

White Cacao Theobroma bicolor

Thank you for any information you can provide.
