Growing crops on a balcony can be a great project. However, some important considerations set it apart from normal crop growing. The most obvious is space.

As such, it’s best to focus on  high-yield crops that you can actually justify growing on a balcony.

Yield- This is the main focus of this story. Choose crops that have high yields because this simply gives you more fruits or vegetables for the space you use.

What Makes a Crop Suitable for Balcony Gardening?


Tomatoes are one of the best container crops. You can grow them in 5-gallon pots, and each plant can yield hundreds of tomatoes.


Growing it at home is so much better. First, you only need small pots (railing planters are ideal), and you can fit several plants in the same container.


They’re a great high-yield crop that can be grown in hanging containers or vertical wall planters, meaning you can save on space.

Bell Peppers

Bell peppers are a great summer food and, like their cousin, the tomato, can produce season-long crops. With the right care, you can have a plant that gives you peppers for months in a steady stream.


A single plant can produce dozens of zucchinis throughout the season, making them perfect for high-yield container gardening.
