Ten Plants With Yellow Berries

Yellow berries brighten your yard using their bright colour. While you typically thinks of berries as little fruit, some, including persimmons and strawberries, are quite big. Some yellow berries are edible, while others are poisonous. So, be certain that you properly recognize a plant before eating its own alluring berries. To help yellow berries really stick out in your garden, then plant them next to purple flowers.

Large Edible Berries

Guava (Psidium guajava), American persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) and Surinam cherry (Eugenia uniflora) trees create large creamy berries. Guava trees bear white flowers that become big berries in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zone 10. American persimmon, also known as common persimmon, Florida persimmon and possumwood, grows in USDA hardiness zones 4 through 9, with inconspicuous spring blooms that become big yellow, orange or purple berries in autumn. Surinam cherry, also known as Pitanga, grows in USDA hardiness zones 9 and 10, bearing fragrant white blossoms that become big yellow, orange, red or mostly green berries in the summer.

Small Edible Berries

You may earn jam and pies with fruit from your garden when you grow Cape gooseberry (Physalis peruviana) and yellow raspberry (Rubus). Cape gooseberry has yellow, bell-shaped blossoms that become small, globose yellow-orange berries with shiny skin. Cape gooseberry rises in USDA hardiness zones 8 to 11. Yellow raspberries are just like red ones and therefore are actually classified as an aggregate fruit and not a true berry. “Goldie” bears golden to apricot-colored fruit and “Fallgold” has flavorful berries that produce a red blush. Raspberries grow in USDA hardiness zones 4 through 9.

Tomatoes and Chili Peppers

Tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum) and chili peppers are true berries and there are plenty of yellow varieties for your home garden. Cherry tomatoes include “Sun Gold,” which requires 57 days to produce fruit, and “Yellow Pear,” which requires 78 days. “Taxi” yields medium-sized tomatoes in 65 to 70 days. Serrano chili peppers (Capsicum annuum) are approximately five times hotter than jalepenos. They start green and turn yellow, yellow, red or brown when they ripen.

Inedible Berries on Trees

Western soapberry trees (Sapindus drummondii) grow yellow or white flowers in spring or summer and little, poisonous, yellow, orange or dark berries in summer; they grow in USDA hardiness zones 8 through 10. The Chinaberry tree (Melia azedarach), also called Persian lilac, has fragrant lavender flowers in the summer and little yellow berries in summer, winter or fall. Its berries are poisonous to humans, but birds love them. Meanwhile, the Chinaberry tree grows in USDA hardiness zones 8 through 12.
