WAMPEE TREE

Yeep Pay Wampee Fruit Tree for SaleBotanical Name: Clausena lansium
Description

This attractive, evergreen, slender tree has been described as the finest fruit of Siam (Thailand). It is also a highly valued backyard tree in southern China and south and east Asia. It is classed as a subtropical fruit but is relatively hardy and can withstand light frosts. This tree is a relative of the citrus family, thus its ability to grow in coastal Australia as far south as Melbourne and inland where the frosts are not too severe.

The fruits are highly aromatic and can be sweet to tangy to almost sour depending on the variety and ripeness. Straight from the tree wampees are very refreshing, thirst quenching and cleansing to the palette. They form in clusters from a few up to eighty in one bunch. The fruits turn yellow when ripe and have a thin, sometimes brittle skin, somewhat like paper. They generally have only 1-2 seeds in each fruit and are best left to ripen on the tree for as long as possible. They are a very attractive looking tree that can grow up to 8 metres with, beautiful dark green ruffled compound leaves. They have a dense growth habit making them an ideal shade tree.

Wampees should be treated very much like any of the other citrus trees in regard to cultivation. A sunny, well drained site with plenty of water and organic matter should see these trees thrive. The crop is borne solely on the tips of branches, so the less pruning the better. Very few problems have been observed with pest and diseases other than occasional infestations of aphids. Mature trees can produce up to 50kg of fruit each year. Like its close relative the citrus it is full of vitamin C, approximately 28mg per 100g. This fruit can be used for making jams, jellies, pies, drinks but best eaten fresh, straight from the tree. If you want them to keep a bit longer you can try leaving the stalks on them.

Wampee

Big, spicy smelling, crinkled leaves, pretty tough but ornamental plant. However, needs care and good conditions if it is to thrive and bear heavily. Slow otherwise. Fruit delicious! | David White - Newcastle, NSW 30-May-2006

Wampee Tree

This tree is a machine. We have one, and during some land clearing, it got uprooted. It sat for about three weeks bare-rooted. It then got planted in crappy clay soil, and started to grow! I've since potted it in decent soil. Amazing. | Jason - Coomera, QLD 13-Jul-2008

Wampee Tree

This tree is thriving here in high altitude, only had it in for 12mths and has grown well over a meter, just waiting for it to fruit! | Chris Gueho - Atherton, QLD 15-Apr-2010

Wampee Tree

Planted a Wampee on NE wide of house in a coastal area. although it did not die it suffered from wind burn and possibly some salt spray. It did not grow. I have moved it and a jaboticaba to the NW side of house which has less wind. Lets see what happens | Rob Siebert - Lennox Head, NSW 23-Apr-2011

Wampee Tree

We have a Wompi growing in the most rocky dry conditions. Our Shetland pony rubbed himself on it until it broke in half. The Wompi grew back twice as strong.It is growing on the northern side of the hill with sun all day. Beautiful looking tree. | Sue Ellis - Gin Gin, QLD 24-May-2012

Wampee Tree

In ground for 7 years, Guy Sam, I think. Handles westerly wind and sun as well as what light frosts we've had; I gave it some shelter until it was about a meter tall. I don't water it, it seems to get enough from the neighbor's care of their lime tree :-) | Peggy - Mount Lofty, QLD 20-Feb-2017
