Many of us are familiar with the lychee because they are easy to grow commercially but there are so many other asian fruits which are great tasting that you may only experience from the local growers below.

Chose this variety based on internet descriptions of fruit taste. Extremely slow growing. Fruit rather small but nice sweet taste.

Have now (2016) moved it to a different spot with different soil and it is growing better.

Henry's Edible Fruits
Update: 43 days 5hrs

Comments: -

Very slow to establish.  Hope to see better growth this year.  Purchased from Daleys.

September 2009:  No growth activity.  Applied sulphate of potash and watered in.

October 2009:  No growth activity, and no, the plant is not dead.  Applied a handful of dynamic lifter.

November 2009:  Cannot see any growth activity.  Continued with twice weekly watering and weekly inspection for pests/diseases. 

December 2009 to January 2010:  Not much growth activity recorded. 

February 2010:  Can see some growth activity this month.  The plant has grown about 5cm taller and carries newer and bigger leaves.  

October 2012:  The plant is much bigger now and looks healthy.  The speed of growth was noticeable in late 2011 and today stands at approx 70cm tall.  Has started flowering.

Update: 140 days 19hrs

Carambola (Star fruit) (Cutting) 10/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 140 days 19hrs

Comments: -

Lovely weeping tree with small pink flowers several times a year. However, must get a really good watering at that time to grow fruit successfully, otherwise the tiny fruit will fall. Virtually no fruit in the last 2 years, but in 2017 had a huge crop of several hundred fruits due to timely rain in late summer. Fruit taste was excellent. Important to wait for the colour to start changing from green to yellow, but should pick before it becomes too ripe as it then loses flavour.

Fruiting Months May

Planted: 2003

When I Fertilise: When Fruiting

Pest Control:

Fruit can get macadamia moth weevil damage in summer months, so spray is beneficial. I prune the top of the tree to keep within reach for fruit picking.

Lychee - Bosworth 3 9/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 235 days 0hrs

Comments: - This variety produces large fruit with very good taste. Grows reasonably fast and we prune the top after fruiting to keep the size manageable. Main pest is fruit bat, although possums and bush rats also like to nibble. So need to protect the bunches with strong mesh or large plastic bottles with breathing holes (like for mangoes).

Fruiting Months January

Planted: 1999

Height 3 metres

Qty: 1

Fruit Harvest: 15 kilograms per Year

First Fruited: 8 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pruned By: 10% in

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

Macadamia nut borer is a problem which spoils some of the crop. A thorough spray with insecticide all over the tree when the fruit is still quite small, including inside the tree to eliminate the moths which harbour there, is very effective.

Diamond River Longan


Propagated from seeds, this is one of the many types of Longan trees that I am growing. The Diamond River variety is said to be a reliable producer. Once at maturity it should produce fruit year in and year out without fail.

Hi Linton, I noticed that your Diamond River Longan is going well. I am not too far from you and wanted to go one from seeds. If I can successfully get a plant from the seedling, I intend to grow it on the pot so that I can bring it into the house during the winter months. Do you have any tips on how to grow the Longan tree successfully based on your experience? Looking forward to your reply and thanking you in anticipation. Patrick
Linton says... [279 days 4hrs ago]
Hi Patrick Sorry but I don't have any spare Diamond River Longans left but you can buy seeds of it from Fruitlovers Nursery in Hawaii and they will send them here. It is not the best variety to grow as the fruit are a bit small. I do have a large fruiting Thai variety spare if you are interested in that one and it was grown from seed. There is a Longan tree in Springvale that has had fruit over Summer and they will grow outdoors in Melbourne. They don't need to be brought inside over Winter. But seed grown trees take a long time to fruit, maybe 7 - 10 years so it's better to get a grafted one in you can afford it as they will fruit much quicker. I had flowers on a grafted Longan this year that I have only had for 6 months so I expect it to fruit next year. Cheers!

 Has died December 2017 - I read some Lychees can turn up their nose and kark it with no warning - Leaves curled and went totally backwards - will put a Mundu in its location in a year or so.

Was a Birdwood Lychee - Very slow growing but was growing well

Slow to fruit, my other jackfruit seedling has fruited this year after only 3 years in the ground. Only 5 fruit at first fruit set in 6 years, severe fruit splitting and botrytis rot. Topped the tree in 2016 at about 2 metres leaving one branch.  Regrew very quickly but not flowers yet.

Ok thanks, looks like Daley's doesn't sell Gold Nugget seedlings anymore, just grafted trees.

Wampee - Yeem Pay 9/10

Davewastech's Edible Fruits
Update: 311 days 6hrs

Comments: -

Wonderful, rather complex taste. Fruited after 2 years. All the fruit ripened at the same time (February). Attractive shrub, looks healthy thru the whole year (I'm in Sydney).  But in second season I got no flowers or fruit. Third season got about 70 fruit.

Seedling purchased from Daleys. I planted a few seeds from my first crop and most of them are growing (slowly - 1 year old, just 20cm high), so I suppose that's an easy way to grow them if you're not in a hurry.

Fruiting Months February

Height 1.4 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

First Fruited: 2 Years from purchase in pot

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Citrus fertilizer 3 / year

Pest Control:

First crop had no pests, but third season about half had Qld fruit fly. (I'll net next season!)  If it didn't get fruit fly I'd rate it 11 out of 10. Up there with the yummiest! (although not quite up there with good durians...)
