Weekend fruit photo: Lychee tree

Isn’t this little Brewster lychee tree just gorgeous?

Brewster Lychee Sept 2005

Of course, it will be even more gorgeous some day, I hope.

My tree has been in the ground for about a year and has put on a good deal of growth. For a lychee growing in the Western USA, that is.

This tree is located on the eastern side of the house, which both gives it morning reflected heat (well, when the sun is actually out in the morning) and protects it from the daily onslaught of cool winds from the west/southwest. Just an example of how one needs to use whatever microclimates one can find when growing fruits marginal to one’s (macro) climate.
