Question & Answer
Is melbourne the right climate for lychees From: SEABROOK VIC
No lychees are not suited to growing in Victoria,. Lychees are suitable to about as far south as Sydney, further south than that you will be better trying a longan which is related and has similar fruit to a lychee but is a little hardier. Longans will also require a frost free climate.
is this plant or any of your lychees air layered? From: BEAUDESERT QLD
All the lychee trees we sell are marcotted, or air layered. You will need to have a frost free site to successfully grow a lychee and as they are very slow growing make sure you remove all the flowers for the first two or three years until your tree is well established.
I live in western sydney what type lychee tree will suit. From: CRANEBROOK NSW
Lychees require a subtropical climate with minimal frost. Western Sydney is marginal, but if you wish to try one I would suggest a Bosworth 3 or Kwai Mai Pink #LycheeBosworth655
Will It Grow in my climate or should I have a Longan Tree. From: DARAWANK NSW
If you are worried about frost then Longan is better than a Lychee Tree "Longans thrive much better on higher ground than the lychee and endures more frost" #CategoryLongan1380
