Gardenfest is canceled. No sign of planning for it at this late date. A bit oddly, the even bigger Under the Oaks art show seems to be going ahead for March 12-14.

No Vero Gardenfest this year.

The Melbourne show is happening on Mar. 6th. (formerly FIT show) at US1 & 192

Exotica Tropicals will likely be holding its own sale in Mel Beach around May.

GTC Inc. Of Brevard/ Island Tropical Fruit "may" have our own lychee tree sale as well.

I have 3g trees of the following variety, Mauritius, Brewster, Sweetheart
Probably going to be in the $45.00 range.

I also have some lychee trees in 15g, labels got mixed up, but they are Mauritius, and Sweetheart. They are 4 years old. Probably in the $150.00 range.

Lychee trees DO NOT like salt. They don't like salt on their leaves nor in their water.

That being said, if you live beach side, I don't recommend planting a lychee tree.


If you are wondering if a lychee tree will grow in your area, I tell people, "look around your neighborhood, do you see any XYZ trees?, if not, then there is probably a reason."

Sweetheart typically has a smaller seed than others, and hence is typically more expensive.

I think brevard rare fruit is having their annual sale. I think I saw an email in that regard. they are holding meetings still.

Basically, my expierence with lychee variety.

Brewster: small round and bright red fruit. really good. shy bearer
Mauritius: most planted. bigger red fruit, good producer but can skip a year or two
Hak Ip: Big fruit, prob best tasting. Very simliar to sweetheart. shy bearer.
Sweetheart: Big fruit, great taste. Prob better producer than hak ip, but has been shy for me.
Emperor: large fruit. Gotta age it a little more on tree. different taste. really good. I've eaten them while green and red.
Sweet Clif: small fruit. good producer. Fruit very small actually. small dwarfish tree. tasty.
