LYCHEE TREE

Lychee fruitBotanical Name: Litchi chinensis
Description

Described as the most luscious of all fruits, the lychee is native to Southern China. For best results lychee's require seasonal temperature variations, warm humid summers and cool dry winters are the ideal climate for growing lychee's.  They are a handsome, dense rounded tree that can be susceptible to damage from strong winds.  We strongly advise the purchase of marcotted trees as they bear in as little as 3 years. The varieties below have proven to be some of the best croppers in a subtropical climate.

Lychee - Seedling

Hardier and easy to grow than a marcotted lychee, seedlings are also a worthy choice for anyone wanting to grow trees for potential selections. Seedlings have been grown from the popular Kwai Mai Pink and Wai Chee varieties. Lychees are slow to grow and need time to mature to size. Seedling are deeper rooted and more stable in the ground so will also be a better choice in high wind areas and marginal climates. Being a seedling they will take longer to come into fruiting. Once they they have reached 2-3m try cincturing to bring them into earlier fruiting.

Lychee Tree

Plant seeds and don't transplant. You're likely to end up with a massive tree, but it will bear more, grow faster and it'll be more cold tolerant | Carl Ramirez - Kensington, NSW 15-Feb-2011

Lychee Tree

Currently growing 8 lychee varieties on Sunshine Coast hinterland property (near Cooroy). So far, best for crop bearing, consistency and flavour is B-3 (Kwai Mai Pink) closely followed by Wai Chee and Sar Keng. Fine mesh bird netting is essential. | Jonathan - Black Mountain-cooroy, QLD 05-Mar-2011
