A close relative to the Lychee tree but much larger, stronger and more cold tolerant. The fruit is deliciously sweet. A highly ornamental tree with beautiful green leaves and clusters of yellow flowers that have a wonderful scent.
Closely related to the Persimmon this attractive glossy foliaged tree produces a fruit often called the 'Chocolate Pudding Fruit'. Delicious when eaten as a desert with cream and a touch of Rum or vanilla. Seedling selection worth growing in cooler marginal areas.
