The great Australian lychee

Lychees are one of the oldest introduced fruits in Australia, with the first lychee trees being brought into northern Australia by Chinese gold miners in the 1800s. These nutritional flavour bombs are an Australian-favourite treat come Christmas time, as lychee season in Australia is during the summer.

At Rocky Creek Orchards we grow three main varieties of lychee (Baitaying, Erdon Lee and Chom Pogo) spread over our three farms. Because of this, we have been able to extend the North Queensland lychee season with ripe fruits starting in November and ending in February. Other varieties of lychee grown in our tropical orchards include Fay Zee Siu and Seedless lychees.
