The Lychee Tree has it all:

  • Attractive ornamental evergreen with Tropical flair
  • Delicious fruit with unique taste
  • Dense green foliage
  • Tolerant Tree, resistant to cold and frost

Lychee Tree:  The best kept Ancient Chinese Secret

There’s a reason the Lychee Tree has been popular for thousands of years.  Actually, there are many reasons.  To start with, the tree combines oriental style with tropical beauty and offers one of the most delicious fruits that a gardener can harvest.  It’s a slow grower that can achieve heights of more than 40 feet.  But the Lychee fruit tastes so good you’ll want to keep it within an arm’s reach.  

Lush, dark green foliage adds great contrast to the Lychee fruits that hang in bunches like giant, rose colored grapes.  The tree is admired both for its tempting fruit as well as the tree’s distinctive visual appeal.  This tree is an absolute must for your garden or landscape.     
 
Lychee has the Fruit of your Dreams

If your imagination came up with its own fruit with the perfect flavor, it would be the Lychee.  It’s no wonder many Asian restaurants serve them sometimes accompanied by ice cream after a satisfying meal.  A rugged outer skin flakes away easily revealing the delicate, velvety fruit that awaits beneath.  Bite into the moist, sweet flesh and experience the rush of exotic flavor unique to the Lychee fruit.  

So different in taste, the Lychee’s white, somewhat translucent flesh almost defies description.  Some say the taste is like combining the flavors of pear, grape and coconut milk all in one fruit.  Lychees are easy to prepare and taste delicious when eaten chilled.  

Add them to fruit salads or as a wonderful topping on desserts.  With flavor this good on such a beautiful tree, isn’t it time you planted your Lychee?

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Lychee Tree can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Lychee Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Lychee Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Lychee Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Lychee Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Can I plant lychee tree on middle June?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2014
Best Answer: It depends on your location. If temperatures are scorching, and in the 90's or above it will be better to wait until the early fall when it cools off to plant your Lychee Tree.
