Just take a screenshot of the excel page, then you can post the jpeg files of each screenshot.

Please note, limit of 1 box per customer.

I'm trying to let everyone buy these cuttings, not to one person !

This will be my last cutting of the year for the Black Pakistan mulberry tree. I have 7 large trees that need trimming. Only selling the cuttings for 1 week, shipping next Monday. Any left over cuttings will be rooted for next year (maybe graft more white Pakistan).

1) Black Pakistan - Fruit is larger than the white mulberry. Fruit is 3-5" long, purple/black colored fruit, juicy and sweet.
    Total cost for scion wood + USPS, small box, priority mail shipping ($7.90)  = $ 10

So you will get a box (5"x8"x1.5") full of cuttings, as much as it will fit for $2.10 plus shipping ! 
Minimum of 8-10 cuttings should fit in the box. You may receive some large (1/2" diameter) as well.

Scions will be taken from trees that are 3-5 years old. See photos of the typical size cuttings you will get.

[ Lower 48 states - Limited to 1 box order per customer ]   

Cuttings are easy to root, or graft onto any mulberry tree.

NO MORE ORDERS TAKEN.

Thanks.

I forgot to mention that I have no other Lychee tree large enough to have fruits so my Brewster tree is by itself no other cross pollination from trees on my block.

fruit4me,

Just curious what happened with your other two grafted Lychees. { Heung Lai and Pot Po Heung Lychee both grafted 4/2016 }
Are they still alive and doing well ?

Here's a quick follow up. I performed a simple test. Randomly selected from the batch of 300 fruits, 10 each test samples.

I found the smallest fruits (qty=10) and the largest fruits (qty=10), took a photo1, then ate them all and placed eat seed at the same location in results photo2.

Results of my test shows that if you eat the small size fruits they have 90% chicken tongue seeds. The big/fat large fruits has 10% chicken tongue fruit.

This seems to follow what I have seen on the fruits from this tree for the last 5 years. The small fruits seems to always have the chicken tongue fruits. Hope this helps solve your mystery.

The lucky person is the one that buys the air layer branch that had the small ripe fruits. I won't tell. I guess I will need to make one air layer branch for myself of the small size fruit.

Good Luck.

Ok, I thought I would add a few comments to this old thread since Simon sent me this link today.

Yes, I agree that the older Brewster tree gives more chicken tongue seed fruits. My tree (see air-layer lychee post) is pretty old (30+yrs) and I know it was labeled Brewster when I first purchased it from the nursery and planted in the ground.

Also as Simon mentions and shows in the photo of the smaller chicken tongue seed and larger seed, my fruits on the tree does shows similar results. The smaller fruits have a very high percentage (80+ %) chicken tongue. The big fat fruits are mostly big seeds. Since I have pick 50 lbs of fruit from my tree, I should have opened them and took a count of the seeds.

I might still have a few hundred fruits left on the tree so if I have time to do this I will and report back. I don't remember eating any of the larger fruits and finding the chicken tongue seeds.

you're welcome.

No problem providing the details of the air layer. I like to harvest the fruits and give away to my friends.
This year was a little more difficult for me to climb up on the roof to pick fruits. I'm still using a crutch to get around since I torn my ACL earlier this year.
A little hard to keep my balance on the roof with a large bag of fruits.

14
ok, if you would like to purchase some lychee fruit, please send me a pm.
I will give you instructions to pay the $10, and ship out next day.
You are limited to only one box of fruits.  Thanks.

15
For those of you (on the order list) I suggest you try some of the fruits in case you don't like it, then you can decline your name in the order list so others can sign up.

The small USPS priority mail box of fruits (qty-30) is $10, which includes the shipping cost ($7.90).

I have 300 fruits just picked yesterday so I can ship out today or Friday. I may need to pick the remainder of the fruits on the top of the tree later this weekend.

Your welcome Kevin. I didn't think there would be this many people interested in the lychee air layer plants. I should have done this sooner instead of just cutting off the branches and tossing them in the trash.

sorry it took a while to post these photos. The photos shows the blue tape where each air layer graft will be made.
I will do a little more than 10 in case of a few failures. You can see by my fingers and thumb the approximate diameter of the branches.

12Zodiac,  I can put you on the backup list but there a few others ahead of you on this list as well.

20
Sorry, orders have reached the maximum of 10.

Not taking any more orders, maybe next year after these are done.

21
here's the three sizes of the shipping boxes.




22
It's the shipping cost that makes it difficult to buy a large one. We'll see once I complete the air-layers since you have the first choice. The large one ($100) may be 5-6 ft tall and will be difficult to ship in a package. I can always cut off some of the tip branches to make it fit into a smaller package for shipping ( 3 ft box ?) but you will still need to buy it as the 6 ft tree cost.

Here's the three box sizes I am thinking of using for the shipments:
1) USPS priority mail, 25" triangular tube.
2) USPS priority mail, 37" triangular tube.
3) Brown Uline box, 36"x12"x12" (I can maybe bend the skinner long branches to fit another foot). I will make an internal structure to prevent the box from collapsing during transit.

23
I will send out your fruit order today.

Not bad price. I found a real nice deal here, $5.99 for a case of 20 fruits (atauflo). I'm growing the seeds for next years rootstock.
I always dehusk  the seeds but I have had no problem either way.
