Only greens and leafy vegetables will grow to a certain extent without sunlight.

Thanks for the reply! But I thought the leafy ones need the sunlight. As Jan will end the sun will start peeping and it will be quite a lot of direct sunlight in coming months... hence I asked of the bottlegourd.

On the contrary, the plants will produce more leaves looking out for sunlight. Plants need a lot of sunlight to produce fruits and vegetables. For balconies leafy vegetables are ideal.
