These seeds were collected from Litchi chinensis, also known as Chinese Lychee, and Lumquat. This tree likes to grow in full sun to partial shade where it can get up to 40 feet tall and fills the air around it with a wonderful fragrance. The flowers don't look impressive but they smell delicious when they blossom in the middle of the spring. This tree has been cultivated for almost 10,000 years now. It attracts bees, butterflies, birds, wasps, and ants. The fruit is juicy and delicious with a flavor similar to grapes. Most of the time they are eaten raw but they can be used to make deserts and ice creams or they can be jarred, pickled, spiced, or dried. Not only do they have great flavor, but they are also very versatile as is the tree itself. It can be used as an ornamental tree, shade tree, bonsai tree, or fruit tree. USDA Hardiness Zones 9b to 11.
