Air Layered - Brewster Lychee plants
« on: August 12, 2019, 04:22:02 PM »
  >> THE ADVANCE ORDER IS COMPLETE, WILL NOT BE TAKING ANY MORE ORDERS - THANKS. <<

My Brewster tree is over 30 years old, get tons of fruit (50 pounds ?) every year. Tastes good, seeds are big.
->looks like I underestimated the total amount of fruit, looks more like 75 lbs (there were more fruits inside the canopy). I picked another 20 lbs today, still have another 20 lbs remaining on the tree.

Sale would be to lower 48 states. Price as estimated below.

Thanks.

Updated with Pricing:
The air-layer branches will range in diameter from 0.40"- 0.70", price will depend on the overall length of the air layer taken and the diameter of the air layer.

1) For length of 24" or less, cost    = $40 plus shipping (tbd), diameter of fattest portion of branch < 0.50"
2) For length of 25-34", cost         = $50 plus shipping (tbd), diameter of fattest portion of branch < 0.50"
3) For length of 24" or less, cost   = $50 plus shipping (tbd), diameter of fattest portion of branch between 0.55"-0.70"
4) For length of 25-34", cost         = $60 plus shipping (tbd), diameter of fattest portion of branch between 0.55"-0.70"
5) For length of 48"-62", cost        = $100, pickup only (to be arranged), diameter of fattest portion of branch between 0.60"-0.75" [will have only 2 of these]

When I complete the air layer and pot them up, I will show the prices for each and the first 10 people that have replied to this post will have priority to choose which one they would like to buy. I will send the photos (of the line up) and go in the order of the list I received confirmation for order. If you decide to not buy it, let me know so I can remove you from this list and add others.

I will add some photos of the branches that will be air layer later tonight.

=> I am limiting the quantity you can order, only 1 per customer. After each person completes his order, if there are any remaining then you can order more than one.

I would be interested in one as well. Put me on your list.

Thanks,
Vincent.


Just need to get some idea of how many people would be interested in purchasing an air-layered Brewster Lychee plant.

Please reply on this post, if I see around 5-10 people interested then I will air-layer some to be sold next year.

My Brewster tree is over 30 years old, get tons of fruit (50 pounds ?) every year. Tastes good, seeds are big.

Sale would be to lower 48 states. Price is TBD for now.

I will posts some photos of the fruits I harvested over the weekend, and some tree photos as well.

Thanks.

Ok, I see at least 7 people interested so I will air-layer about 10 branches. If more people commit/advance order by end of August then I will add additional air-layers.

See the updated photos which was added tonight.

I will update with the price for each by tomorrow, after I decide where each air-layer with go on the tree. Should be able to give estimate of the size (height) of the air layer.

For those of you that said you are interested in the air-layer, I have added you to the waiting list (total of 10 people max). Since I had more fruits than I estimated, if any one of you would like to taste the fruit of the Brewster tree, I will sell the fruits to you.

Cost for USPS priority mail, small flat rate($ 7.90) + 30 fruits = $10, send me pm to pay for it, and give me your ship address.

You should let me know in the next day or so since I just picked these fruits again today. I will not be shipping any fruits after Friday.

Thanks.

pinkturtle,

"When I complete the air layer and pot them up, I will show the prices for each and the first 10 people that have replied to this post will have priority to choose which one they would like to buy.

You can not reserve any specific size tree (cost) now.

Jabba The Hut is the only person who will have the first choice from the batch since he was the first on this list.

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.
