Many houseplants produce only foliage; some produce flowers. Citrus is about the only indoor plant that will reliably produce edible fruit indoors. Some herbs grow well inside and are edible as well. Strawberry plants really need full sunlight outdoors or bright light and heat in a greenhouse to be able to produce edible fruit.
