Lychee Trees

Lychee trees are native to China. The pulp is aromatic, sweet to sub-acid, separates easily from the seed and outer shell. The fruit is usually eaten fresh but can also be canned or dried and more importantly in cocktails! Lychees prefer well drained slightly acidic soil, regular watering and a sunny location. Protection from freezing winter temperatures is also required.

We are currently sold out of Lychee for 2022. Please check back next season for availability.
