Start a backyard permaculture with these berry plants and other edibles that are perfect for growing in your backyard.

From blueberries and strawberries to gooseberries and rhubarb, growing berry plants and other edible fruits and vegetables is a healthy way to live.

Common Berry Plants

With these common berry plants you can have fresh fruit at your fingertips.

Growing Strawberry plants in your backyard is easy and fun.You can grow them in your garden or in a container. 

They like at least 6 hours of full sun for best berry production. 

Blueberry plants

Growing Blueberry plants in your backyard is a great way to have fresh fruit for pies, jams, muffins and lots more.

Planted in full sun, they will give you lots of berries for eating.

Navaho Thornless Blackberries - growing upright to about 4 or 5 feet, this thornless blackberry bush produces lots of delicious large berries which are great for pies, cobbler or eating right off the plant.

It loves full sun and will attract lots of pollinators to your garden.

Raspberry Plants are easy to grow in your backyard. With full sun and moist soil that is mulched to keep in the moisture and prevent weeds from developing, you will have great success with them.

Berry Plants with Health Benefits

I chose these berry plants because of their amazing health benefits. All 3 are high in Vitamins,  antioxidants, and essential minerals that you need and you can grow them in your backyard. 


Gooseberries (Ribes hirtellum) - A fast growing shrub with edible berries that have a lot of health benefits. Delicious in jams, pies or eating fresh off the shrub, they are worth growing.

Jostaberry (Ribes × nidigrolaria) - A cross between a black currant and a gooseberry, this thornless fruit is tasty in jams, pies, ice cream and more.

Seaberries (also known as sea buckthorn) have many health benefits including promoting heart health, boosting your immune system, protecting against diabetes and more.

They do have small thorns on them but they are worth growing.

Other Edible Plants

Red and green seedless table grapes right off the vine, what could be better, or making a rhubarb pie from freshly cut rhubarb is all possible when growing edible plants in your backyard.

Grapes - Red and green seedless table grapes are perfect for growing in your backyard. 

Growing them on an arbor where you can pick them off anytime and eat fresh is the way to go.

Rhubarb - Besides being healthy for you because it's full of antioxidants, fiber and vitamin K, it makes great jam, pies, and other sweet desserts.

It's also a fun vegetable to grow.
