Sweet, Heart-Shaped Fruit in Spring and Summer

Originating from the lineage of the renowned Mauritius Lychee, the Sweetheart Lychee is a remarkable subtropical evergreen that stands out with its ability to bear fruit at a very young age. This variation of Lychee has a high production of fruit with smaller seeds and juicier flesh than other varieties.

The self-pollinating Sweetheart Lychee boasts a vibrant red, heart-shaped fruit that can be harvested during late spring and summer. The outer shell cracks when fully ripe, signifying the perfect moment to indulge in the uniquely textured, grape-like flesh. 

With a delightful rose scent, the Sweetheart Lychee's flavor is mild and slightly floral, complemented by subtle acidic notes reminiscent of a pear. This makes it an excellent choice for enhancing salads or enjoying fresh, straight from the tree. 

Whether planted in a container for a more compact size or in the ground to achieve a larger stature, this tree adapts to various settings. Plus, it’s disease-resistant with low-maintenance care, making it suitable for any level of gardener. Grab your Sweetheart Lychee today!
