Q. about grafted lychee sapling

A local nursery in my area is selling Lychee saplings, saying it’s a grafted one and will bear fruit within one year. However, he doesn’t know what kind of grafting or variety of seedling. So my question is, how I am gonna know whether given Lychee sapling is a grafted one? Please provide any clue to identify.

If your tree has been grafted, the grafting scar will be right below the place where the branches start. It will look like a slightly raised ring around the trunk.

Q. How long after Lychees start sprouting above the soil should I wait to replant them

I\’m trying to grow Lychee nut trees. I started them in moist paper towels until I seen them start germinating. Then I planted them in 4\” deep cups with drainage holes in them. How long after planting them should it take before they break the top soil? Then how long should I wait before replanting them in the 3 gallon containers? Thank you for any help to my questions. God Bless Angie

Hi Angela; I am sending you a link to an article on propagating lychee. Notice that growing from seeds is the least effective and predictable method. You will get a tree if all goes well, but you will not necessarily get the fruit you expect.

"You could also grow them from seed, but trees can take more than 10 years to bear and fruit may not be true to the parent."
