 Houseplants You Can Eat

Not every plant you grow inside your home is just for show or for fun, some of them have purposes you may not even have thought of, such as eating! This being said, here are 10 houseplants that are safe to eat.

  1. Arugula

Arugula is an ancient leafy vegetable that is a favorite of chefs around the globe. Like most salad greens, it’s an annual and does best in cooler weather. The arugula plant is low-growing with dull green leaves that can be blanched to almost white when covered while still growing. Arugula is always found in the salad greens mix known as mesclun. 

  1. Kale

Kale is very rich in iron and other nutrients, like Vitamins A and C. Kale plants are extremely robust, adaptable to many different situations, and will grow in winter. Growing kale can be done in all types of soil, although they prefer sunny, well-drained areas. 

  1. Lettuce

Perhaps you don’t have adequate garden space but you love salads. You can have fresh lettuce all year round in the comfort of your home! 

  1. Spinach

Growing spinach in the home garden is a great way to get plenty of iron, calcium, and vitamins A, B, C, and K. This nutrient-rich green has been cultivated for over 2,000 years.

  1. Chives

If you use chives liberally in dishes, growing them indoors is perfect. Chives growing indoors will benefit from a regular trim.

  1. Dill

Dill is tasty, and in late summer it produces fantastic yellow flowers. Having it in a container near or even in your kitchen is a great way to ensure you get the most out of cooking. 

  1. Mint 

Lots of people grow mint out in the garden and for those who know just how vigorous this herb plant is, then it’s no surprise to learn that it thrives easily in a potted environment just as well. The fresh leaves can be used in tea if you drink mint tea. 

  1. Parsley

Growing parsley indoors on a sunny windowsill is ornamental as well as practical. Parsley can then be used for dishes like pasta. 

  1. Oregano

Oregano is a heat-loving, pungent herb that is found in Mediterranean and Mexican cooking. Growing oregano indoors is an excellent way to bring those flavors to your food!


  1. Basil 

This wonderfully fragrant herb can be grown for use in the kitchen, making aromatic oils, or simply for aesthetic purposes.
