The King of Fruits

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 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?

Lychee Tree - Current Status
The Lychee tree arrived safe and sound and on time. After transplanting it into our front yard, within 2 to 3 weeks, it took hold in its new environment and is producing fresh, new growth.
If you're looking for plants and trees that you can't find locally, I would not hesitate to recommend Fast-Growing Trees.

Brown tips on leaves
I don't know the reason but my Lychee arrived nice and green and then the leaf tips started turning brown. I planted it within two days. The tree is maintaining its size which is about a foot and a half above ground. Within the last couple of days it seems to putting on new growth at the tips of most branches. It has already had a few new leaves. These new leaves don't' have brown tips. It has now been planted for about two months.

Lychee
Received the two Lychee and one Papaya trees; transplanted both; Lychee is growing new leaves; Papaya did not survive--could be the shock of transplanting and weather; we had a heat wave the week it arrived.

The packaging was designed to protect plants in transit.

Hope the Lychee will fruit next year; looking forward buying more exotic trees that are permitted by California.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

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.

How big is this tree when it arrives and how long will it take to fruit? I have read some trees can take up to 15 years before fruit.
A shopper on Jun 19, 2014
Best Answer: They are approximately 2ft tall and should take about 1-2years to bear fruit. We graft our trees so they fruit faster than something grown from seed.

re: lychee tree by "patio" do you mean: should be in a container that come into the house during winter months? if so, i live in flint, michigan zone 5 should i leave the container outdoors until the night temps drop to constant below freezing or should i bring it in while the temps are still above freezing?

If it can grow to 20 feet and up, how do you even plant it in a container and move it indoors in the NE winter? Just not possible.
Jason B on Apr 13, 2015
Best Answer: Plants will only grow so big when in a container. I'm assuming if you plant this in the ground, it will grow up to 20 feet, but if you plant it in a container, it will only grow to the size of the container.

Do you have any special instructions or tips to plant it in a planter/pot? And does it require a certain pH?
D V on Apr 27, 2015
Best Answer: Make sure that your containers have drainage holes. Having containers with drainage is crucial to your plants survival. The holes should be large enough to let out excess water, but not large enough that soil is falling out.
It is best to use a planting mix, potting soil or a homemade compost equivalent. In order to make your own planting mix, we recommend mixing five parts compost with one parts builder sand, one part vermiculite, and one quarter part of dry organic slow release fertilizer.
Gently remove your plants from their nursery container.
Start planting your tree in the center of the container and working outward. Scoop and fill soil in the container as needed. The soil should be at the same level that it had in the original nursery container. There should be no more or less of the plants stem covered.
Make sure to water your plant thoroughly after planting. After you water your plants check the soil level and add more if necessary. Make sure that there are no air pockets in the soil.
The pH level should be around 5.0-5.5

For better pollination to yield more fruit, can it partner with different variety of lychee tree?
Aimee T on May 18, 2016
Best Answer: I really don't know. I've had mine for about 5 years and it hasn't done anything but grow, no lychee nuts at all. You might be right, it's a stand alone tree and might need a friend. Ask the guys at F-G-T and see what they say, I seem to recall reading that it was self pollinating. Victoria

Any idea if this will fruit if I plant it in a humongous pot? Are these organic ?
Marisa Y on May 2, 2016
Best Answer: You would have to ask the distributor if the tree was grown organically. It takes two years to certify the fruit to be sold organic. I was told. I may be incorrect on that, but it shouldn't be a problem,because the tree seems to be a slow growing plant that takes a long time to produce fruit. I think it could be grown in a pot because it does grow so slow.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
