Lychee - No Mai Chi


One of the most prized and desired varieties in the world and the leading variety in China. Large red fruits with small seeds, they have clean, dry fruits that are excellent for drying. The trees are harder to grow than other varieties and can be frustratingly slow but with extra care and nurturing they are well worth the effort for the quality of their fruits. Better suited to areas with cool winters. Late season.

This is a very small tree and is already flowering, not sure what to do if it fruits as its only 0.5m tall.Dropped all its flowers, not in the best position as its shaded in summer, may need to relocate this. Survived the Sydney winter no problem and p...

Extremely slow growing and very sensitive to fertiliser and water, I made the mistake of fertilising it and it never fully recovered.  Do not use fertiliser on the plant for the first few years as they have there own store of nutrients (I learnt that ...

Very good taste. In Sydney, fruits later in February, so good companion to Bosworth 3. Very slow growing, but has a nice compact shape and more tasty fruit with small seed.

When the tree was still quite small I cropped around 2kg of fruit, but have never repeated that success. Flowers form, fruit sets but often falls off. Then the flying foxes come and steal my crop. I'm lucky to get a handfull.

Espaliered into a basic fan pattern on 2m high trellis.  Water weekly, if needed.  Planted March 2009, new growth quickly flowed.

Ocean View, QLD, Australia

This has been a learning curve. The tree is quite slow growing. In its first year, it put out a flush of growth in mid winter and the icy westerlies burnt it all off before we realized what was happening. This year we have a hessian tree surround and i...
