According to an article by The Economist, the vertical farms benefit plants that are grown all year such as root crops like radishes and potatoes and fruits like melons. Most vertical farms are used to grow leafy vegetables such as lettuce, spinach, strawberries or cherry tomatoes because vertical farming hangs the plants vertically giving them the perfect amount of light and nutrients that they need without using as much water as traditional farming.
For example, the Paignton Zoo Environmental Park in the UK is going to be creating a vertical farm at their zoo in order to provide their animals and reptiles with fresh herbs, vegetables and fruits that their diet requires on a year round basis.
