I have successfully fruited Huang Lai lychees from my longan tree. My proudest achievement in the gardening world. Fruit was so so so good. Flesh was juicy soft and melting sweet with very good aroma.  Also, majority of the seeds were tiny. No rag and tanium after taste like some other lychees.

















Hey Max, how is your Heurng Lai Lychee grafted onto Longan doing? Also I was wondering if you know what variety is the rootstock Longan?

Anyone else have a successful graft of Lychee onto Longan?

Hi,

Great experience.

I would like information and the reverse is possible?

I have adult lychee trees, but eventually, they suffer attack from the erinose mite, I wanted to use the adult and strong lychee trees to graft longans is this possible?

2018 updates, not much happening yet. Both grafts are still looking very healthy. The longan tree is active now, so should see some action soon. Sorry, donít exactly what cultivar the longan rootstock is. But, guessing a kohala.

Hey Max, thanks for the update! Iím about to innarch Emperor Lychee onto Lychee seedling rootstock to see if I can increase its growth rate and adapt better to our soil conditions. With your successful Lychee onto Longan grafts, it gives me hope it is possible. I am still a bit worried about long term graft incompatibility but each year that your grafts stays alive gives me that much more hope. Lychees hate my heavy clay soil but Longan is growing fine in it. Thanks again for the update Max.
