Top 5 Fruits To Grow In Your Garden in Rainy Season

Monsoon season brings with it pleasant weather, and a lot of benefits for plants, such as abundant water, cooler temperatures, and fewer pests. Also, eating homegrown fruits is not only satisfying but a boon for our immune systems. Seasonal fruits are rich in taste and packed with nutrients that help us fight several diseases common during this season. However, not all fruits can thrive in wet and humid conditions. 

Here are the 5 best fruits that can be grown easily at home and enjoyed during the rainy season:

1. Banana

Bananas are one of the easiest fruits to grow in any season, but they also do well in the monsoon. They need a lot of water and sunlight, which are readily available during the rainy season. They also have a short harvest time and can be enjoyed soon after planting. Bananas are rich in potassium, fiber, and vitamin C, which are good for overall health and strengthen the immunity system.

2. Cherries

Cherries are another fruit that can tolerate the rainy season, as long as they are planted in well-drained soil and protected from strong winds. They need at least six hours of sun per day and moderate watering. Cherries are a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and anthocyanins. They are low-calorie fruit that helps prevent several diseases including cancer. They also help in reducing inflammation and regulating uric acid levels and blood pressure.

3. Lychee

Lychees are juicy fruits often called ‘Chinese strawberries’ and are very sweet and flavorful. They are relished during monsoons throughout India. They have thin and rough skin that can protect them from fungal infections and pests. They need a lot of water and sunlight to grow well, so the rainy season is ideal for them. Eat them fresh or use them to prepare juices, they help strengthen the immune system. They can help cure several diseases such as the common cold, asthma, acidity, and indigestion. 

4. Plum

Plums are juicy and versatile fruits that can be easily grown in the home garden. They can be eaten as fruits or used to make jams and jellies. They come in different colors and varieties, such as purple, red, yellow, or green. Plums need a cold winter to produce flowers and fruits, but they also tolerate wet weather well. They are rich in vitamins C and K, folate, copper, potassium, antioxidants, and fiber. Apart from improving immunity, plums help cure constipation and have anti-cancerous properties. 

5. Pomegranate

Pomegranates are one of the oldest cultivated fruits in the world and have a rich history and symbolism. They have a hard and leathery skin that encloses hundreds of ruby-red seeds that are sweet and tangy. Pomegranates are not only drought-tolerant but also do well in moderate rainfall.
