Fruit trees may not tolerate shady growing conditions, but plenty of other fruiting plants will. If you have a spot in your yard that receives partial sun, try growing these fruits:

Blueberries (low bush)
Currants
Elderberries
Gooseberries
Hardy Kiwi
Juneberries
Lingonberries
Mulberries
Muscadines
Raspberries
Strawberries

Keep in Mind:

  • Many of the fruits on the list grow on vines or brambles, meaning they will spread. Grow them in an area where you don't mind them taking over, or plant them in a container to limit their growth
  • Fertilize regularly to encourage a large harvest
  • Some of the fruits listed my not be suitable for your area. Research any varieties you're considering before purchasing
