The tree in full fruit is a stunning sight.
There is hardly a more attractive ornamental fruit tree than a well shaped, dark green lychee
tree heavily laden with clusters of bright red fruits.
Large smooth skin, dark maroon fruits with medium size seeds, Kaimana Lychee is large
heart-shaped fruit with 33% shriveled seed and very sweet and juicy. This Lychee tree
is a large, vigorous, upright tree. At peak ripeness the Kaimana Lychee is truly delicious
and in taste tests against other varieties consistently outranks all of the others.
The lychee tree is handsome, dense, round-topped and
slow-growing with smooth, gray, brittle trunk and limbs. Under ideal conditions they may
reach 40 feet high, but they are usually much smaller. An attractive, slow growing
evergreen tree originating in China which can reach heights of 35 feet. The lychee tree
has pinate leaves with a shiny leather texture and fruit growing in clusters. The ripe
fruit is Large, conical or wedge-shaped red fruit with soft flesh, one to one and a half
inches long and has dark red-brown rough skin.
The flesh is pearly white, sweet and firm.
The leathery, pinnate leaves are divided into four to eight leaflets. They are
reddish when young, becoming shiny and bright green. Lychee trees have full foliage and
branch to the ground. They can be grown for a short period in a large container.

Hardiness: USDA Zone 9b- 11: to -3.8 °C (25 °F)
Location: Lychees need full sun, but
young trees must be protected from heat, frost and high winds.
Soil: The tree needs a well-drained
soil that is rich in organic matter. A soil pH between 5.5 and 7.5 is acceptable, but
plants grow much better in soils with a pH at the low end of this range. Apply a thick
layer of organic mulch to the soil after planting.
Irrigation: The lychee will not
tolerate standing water, but requires very moist soil, so water the tree regularly when it
is growing actively. The trees are very sensitive to damage from salts in the soil or in
water. Rainwater or treated water should be used. They are sensitive to overfertilization;
with too much fertilizer, the leaves will brown from the edges.
Fertilization: Young trees tend to
grow slowly, and many gardeners tend to give them too much fertilizer in an attempt to
push them along. Young trees should receive only light applications of a complete
fertilizer. Mature trees are heavier feeders and should be fertilized regularly from
spring to late summer. Use fertilizers formulated for acid-loving plants. Chelated iron
and soil sulfur may be necessary in areas with alkaline soils.
Lychee trees are vigorous growers with a hemispherical shape and upright, spreading habit
of growth and wide crotch angles. The branches strong and grooved or ribbed. The leaves
are medium green, flat and the edges are straight with an average of 6 leaves to a leaf
stalk and new growth flushes are slightly reddish to light green.Typically, Kaimana lychees in the northern hemisphere are ripe during the month of May and
June. The season for Kaimana lychee in Hawaii is late spring early summer.
Lychees require seasonal temperature variations for
best flowering and fruiting, Warm, humid summers are best for flowering and fruit
development, and a certain amount of winter chilling is necessary for flower bud
development. Most varieties need between 100 and 200 hours of standard chilling (32°
- 45° F). Cool winters with low rainfall are ideal for lychees. The trees become
more hardy as they age. Mature trees have survived temperatures as low as 25° F when
fully hardened off. Young trees may be killed by a light frost. Lychees can be
successfully grown in frost-free coastal areas.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges
individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the
discount (i.e.: additional item $7.61). My stores' combined shipping is built in for same
items rather than a varied selection. S/H includes postage, USDA certification and inspection,
proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I can't really change any
of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it is hard to discount much as each
different species requires it's own prep, packing, then at USDA each has to be
unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last
piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It
takes my wife and I, a day to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we
drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post
Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.

LIVE PLANTS ARE PERISHABLE.
For this reason uninsurable.
When you order a plant we assume you are prepared to care for it.
Please have potting media and a container prepared for your plant
before it arrives. Shipping can be stressful on a plant, and any
mistakes that you make upon arrival can stress the plant further,
which is not good. Proper care is critical upon arrival. It is your
responsibility to know how to care for the plant.
Not every plant that I order through
the mail survives, and I am aware of that and accept the risk when I
order. This is the risk that you as the buyer accept, because there
is no way to know what kind of conditions it will endure in the trip
to your door. My responsibility ends when a live plant is delivered
to your door. Live arrival is guaranteed, eternal survival is up to

Rare Palm Seeds
Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity advertised.
Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or damaged during shipment will be replaced at
seller's expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All other replacements,
refunds, returns and exchanges will be made at the sole discretion of the seller.
Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such
as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers,
weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather
conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as
temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These
factors are totally out of the seller's control and are the buyer's responsibility and
risk. Consequentially, the seller cannot unconditionally guarantee seed to perform
properly regardless of conditions or the buyer's methods or mistakes.
