The 11 Best Vegetable Varieties for Growing in Containers
Vegetables that are ideally suited for growing in containers include tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, green onions, beans, lettuce, squash, radishes and parsley. Pole beans and cucumbers also do well in this type of garden, but they do require considerably more space because of their vining growth habit.
As an extreme example, last year my wife and I successfully grew and harvested bananas we grew in pots. Nope, it wasn’t easy. We live in Ag Zone 7B, not the tropics, so getting a harvest required overwintering banana “pups” indoors in pots during the cold months, and the pups had grown quite large by the time we put the containers outdoors once the weather warmed.
