If you're keen to challenge yourself, you can also try to grow peppers, tomatoes, and peas. But remember that these fruit bearing plants require pollination, which won't happen naturally indoors; so you will need to manually pollinate. This can easily be done for plants like tomatoes, peas, and peppers because they are self-fertile plants; meaning they have both the female and male parts in one flower. You can manually pollinate these plants by gently shaking the flowers or using a cotton swab or small paintbrush to transfer pollen into the middle part of the flower.
