Rules the Garden

Why get the Emperor Lychee?

  • Giant, juicy Lychees that hold well to the tree
  • Slow growth makes it perfect for containers
  • Convenient compact size that's great for growing indoors

Transform your Garden into an Oriental Paradise

With a mix of island and Asian flair, the Emperor Lychee Tree will help create a relaxed and inviting retreat, whether planted in your garden, in the yard or on the patio. A slow, compact grower, the Emperor won't exceed heights of 10 feet, so the design possibilities are limitless wherever you choose to locate it. Clusters of giant-sized Lychees surrounded by green, pointed leaves put on an awesome display of tropical beauty. Aside from the trees good looks, one trip to the produce section and you'll know why this highly coveted fruit is in such high demand. Lychees can sell commercially for as much as $10 per pound. That means you'll save tons of money by harvesting your own fresh, delicious Emperor Lychees by the bushel right from your own tree.

Emperor Lychees taste Divine

It is said that angels eat Lychees in heaven. The fruit's soft, velvety texture and milky, sweet flavor is that good. And as the largest Lychees available anywhere, there's that much more to love with the Emperor. Lychees the size of golf balls emerge in large numbers throughout the tree. With great staying power, your fruit will hold firm until they're ready to be picked. Compared to a mix of passion fruit and grapes, the Lychee's flavor is perfect for fresh, chilled eating alone, added to tropical fruit drinks or sliced and topped on your favorite desserts. You can even leave the skin on and freeze them for up to 3 months!

With incredible flavor and a multitude of planting options, the Emperor Lychee is a tree fit for royalty.

    Emperor Lychee Tree

    I bought two trees. When they arrived, one was healthy, but the other wasn't. It had fallen out of its pot and soil. The pot was smashed...most likely during transport. FGT replaced it, and it arrived in excellent condition. It's a beautiful tree! These trees are very sensitive to wind though.

    Replacement tree looks great!

    Bought the Lychee several months before it finally shipped. It didn't do well for various reasons but the replacement tree is looking great. Thank you, FGT for your stellar service, shipping and product line.

    Healthy tree

    Came earlier than promised. Tree was very healthy and leaves were shiny. Planted on same day. Placed in a pot in sunny locations. Seems to be doing great.

    Second chances

    My first experience wasn't a good one, the lychee looked as if it had been grown in a dark room, once planted the pale green leaves promptly burned and died. The replacement lychee is one of the most beautiful young trees I've planted

    The replacement looks so much better

    The first tree was dying when it got to me, but they replaced it for free and the new one looks much better. The customer service rep was very helpful and knowledgeable. I am very happy with this company
