Fruits and Vegetables in Florida

You can enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables in Florida by growing them in your own yard – even if you live in an urban area.

Don't have a backyard? See Container Gardening for information about growing edibles almost anywhere.

For information about pests in your garden, see Diseases and Insects. You can also learn how to start a vegetable garden.

Citrus growers can find information on pest and disease management, varieties, local events, and more on the UF/IFAS Citrus Extension website.
