Top 10 Nutrient-Dense Fruits and Vegetables to Grow

8. Kiwi Fruits

Crammed full of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, kiwis claim a catalog of health benefits, including reducing the risk of heart disease and respiratory problems. Weight for weight kiwis contain more vitamin C than oranges, making them a very easy way to get your recommended daily allowance.

Look for a self-fertile variety if you only have the space for one kiwi vine. Grow it in a warm, sunny position against a wall or up trellis.

7. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are a summer favorite, with many shapes, colors and sizes to choose from. We love them for their aroma, taste – and their nutrient dense fruits – which include vitamins A, C and E, anti-inflammatory flavonoids and potassium. They’re also chock full of lycopene, which may help to prevent some cancers. Smaller, red tomatoes contain the highest concentration of lycopene.

Grow your tomatoes somewhere sunny and feed them regularly with an organic liquid tomato fertilizer for the tastiest, healthiest tomatoes.
