No Mai Tsze Lychee in Florida
« on: July 21, 2018, 11:36:59 PM »
Sulcata Grove just posted a video about the No Mai Tsze Lychee. In the video, they sample the fruit and compare it to Sweetheart. The fruit does look a lot like the No Mai Tsze I ate in Hong Kong and China except that the fruit in Asia were more filled in and rounded. The description on the growth rate of the tree also suggests it is the real NMT. Their description of it being less juicy and with a concentrated sweet flavor is also spot on.

I hope others will be able to grow and sample this variety in the near future.

sounds like a winner. The slower growth is a plus for backyard growers. My Brewster grows like a weed. It's getting a heavy haircut today.
