Lychee - Wai Chee (Grafted) 7/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 3575 days 14hrs

Comments: -

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 it fared much better. It is planted in the lee of a large tree on the windward side, but this did not really help. No sign of fruiting yet. Receives regular water from our greywater dripper line.

Planted: 2008

Height 0.75 metres

Peachcot Ora A (Grafted) 7/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 3575 days 15hrs

The tree has been planted for a little over a year and has produced fruit in both first and second seasons. The first year the fruit was delicious, but sadly a combination of birds and strong winds meant that we did not get any of the second season fruit.  the tree receives very little attention, but is on a dripper line from our greywater system.

Asking the pair of king parrots nicely if they would like to go on to some native foods instead.
