8 Vegetables And Fruits To Grow In Your Garden In Spring

As the spring season has brought bloom in gardens and farms, it is time to think about the new harvest. It is the perfect time to sow the seeds for vegetables and fruits that are likely to blossom between February and April, months in which spring spreads all its vibrant colours across India.

Whether you have a balcony in your flat or a small garden in your house, you can grow a few plants and enjoy fresh produce during the onset of the summer season. Here are 10 vegetables and fruits that are perfect to grow in this season.


If you want to grow a mango tree in your home garden, you should plant it in this weather. It requires a lot of sunlight and water to flourish. Spring is considered the best time to sow its seeds and witness it grow and become a tree, in the next couple of years, that would give you juicy and sweet mangoes, also called the king of fruits. 


Although consumed mostly in the winter season, radishes can still grow in the spring season. Their growth rate is faster than many fruits and vegetables, and most importantly, they require less care. You can simply plant the heads of radishes in the soil, provide them with optimum water, and witness the plants grow into delicious root vegetables.


Strawberries are considered perennial fruits, which means it takes them a couple of years to mature and produce fruits. Therefore, the spring season is the ideal time to sow their seeds. They must be grown in well-drained soil and in a place where there is plenty of sunlight.


Cabbage is a cool-season vegetable which makes spring the perfect time to grow it. The temperature is neither too hot nor too cold, and these plants can receive an optimum amount of sunlight during the day. The soil must be fertile, and you must water the plant every day to ensure you can harvest firm heads.  


Whether you are making fruity puffed pastries or baking tarts, blueberries are versatile fruits that are grown in either later winter or early spring. This is potentially the right opportunity to sow their seeds. The plant can take at least 2-3 years to bear fruits, but the harvest is usually ready in later spring or early summer.


If you like greens in your food, you should grow spinach in your garden. The cool-season crop flourishes in mild temperatures which is why spring is the best time to grow it. The crop blooms faster, and you can cut the leaves, and leave the plants to regrow soon for the next harvest.


Another fruit that you can grow in this weather is grapefruit. Its citrus flavour makes it a perfect addition to desserts and savouries. It can be planted in the early spring season, and soon enough you will have the first harvest ready. You can also use it to garnish cocktails and mocktails.


Imagine red ripe tomatoes growing in your home garden. No matter what day or time, you can instantly harvest them and use them in curries, soups, and snacks. Tomatoes are known to blossom in the spring season, especially where the weather is a good mix of cold and warm temperatures. They need a good amount of irrigation and sunlight to flourish.
