As long as you choose dwarf varieties, you can grow them in containers. You can find dwarf varieties of almost any common fruit tree, but citrus trees are the most commonly grown kind.

Containers for growing dwarf fruit trees may include those made from plastic, metal, clay, ceramic, or wood, as long as there is adequate drainage provided. A general rule of thumb, however, is to start with a container approximately six inches wider than that from which the tree is initially placed in at the nursery.

The miniature fruit tree enjoys well-drained sandy soil of moderate fertility, which is suitable for most dwarf fruit trees.
