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 Pollination
Lychee Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Lychee Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

This is my First Tree I Haven't Seen Any New Greenery Yet But it's Still Early in The Year.
Everything is Good I Do Love What i See But it's Still Early in The Year.
I ordered fruit trees that were for my zone and received them in good condition and prompt.
Review of lychee tree
Our overall experience thus far has been great. The tree arrived safely, in good health and when scheduled. It was planted promptly after delivery and has been growing profusely since then. So far we have been very pleased.
Extremely sensitive to cold temps
Very slow growing plant that is extremely sensitive to cool temps even when covered. So I learned my lesson with the frst and then purchased another and both are remaining in the greenhouse. The one recovered but went from four feet to 18". it took almost a year and its about 22" now and the other is doing great but VERY slow growing.
Lychee in San Jose Ca this Fall
So far so good....the tree came in bushy and beautiful but took a turn right after planting....seemed depressed...leaves were drooping and curling....but now about a month after planting it seems to be thriving again!
