Container plants with low glycemic index (GI)?

Posted by SD_in_SC South Carolina (My Page) on

Does anyone have recommendations of edible plants that grow well in containers and have a low glycemic index/load?

Currently, I only have access to a 8' x 10' space in which to raise a container garden. Fortunately, I am in zone 8 and this space typically gets direct sunlight 9am-7pm (i.e., more fruit possiblities). Due to dietary restrictions, I must focus on low glycemic index (GI) or low glycemic load (GL) foods.

I have been focusing on fruits, and it seems these would do best in my area (although the selection will have to be narrowed due to the small, open-air space):

Blueberry, Rabbiteye
Cherry, Surinam
Key Lime
Meyer Lemon
Raspberries, Everbearing

Any suggestions at all would be greatly apprecated!

Not interested in traditional veggies? In your original post, you asked for 'edible plants that grow well in containers'. Can you be more specific?

Yeah, I'm kind of confused too. There are lots of veggies and herbs that would be great, but are you only interested in fruit? Also, can I ask if you're diabetic?
