Must be a tropical treat because I've only heard about them here. I'll bet they are good.

Have a terrific day Judy. :)

Yes, it is a fruit Paula. I certainly miss this tree.

kristi said...

I would love to try that fruit someday. What is is most like? mango? pineapple? Thanks for hosting!! Have a great week.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I hope you get to try it some day kristi. It is not similar to mango or pineapple. It is also known as Chinese guinep. Take care and have a good Wednesday.

Judy Haughton-James said...

It is a fruit that can be spelt a variety of ways and is also known as Chinese guinep. Take care and have a good Wednesday Tammi.

Danielle Royalegacy said...

What a bummer! I know what it is like to lose a good fruit tree. I will lose them to weather issues, too. But my weather issues are different. We will get a nice warm spell in the very early spring, the trees start coming out, then it will freeze again. We lost four fruit trees so far in the past few years to this.

Judy Haughton-James said...

A bummer indeed Danielle! I could hardly believe my eyes!

Maria said...

Oh wow, those poor trees!! I've never had lychees but they look and sound so good. I'm glad you got to enjoy some before Hurricane Sandy hit!! Hope the new year brings many more your way! Xoxox

Lisa said...

What a shame, it was a beautiful tree and the lichis looked delicious.

I love lychees! I wish I have my own tree.

Dominique Goh said...

Lovely Lychees. I love eating them.

BusyWorkingMama said...

Boo on the tree! What a shame. Wonder how long a newly planted one would have to grow to produce fruit.

Veronica Lee said...

Yummmmm!!!! I love lychees!!!

Happy Wednesday, J!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Happy Wednesday Veronica!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I am going to check how long it would take for another lychee tree to grow and produce fruit BusyWorkingMama. I hope it won't be too long!:)

Judy Haughton-James said...

I hope I can get another tree in my backyard Simply Delicious.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I am also a big fan of Lychees Dominique!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I lost this tree and so many others during Hurricane Sandy Art of RetroCollage. Sad indeed.

Judy Haughton-James said...

How sad! What a beautiful tree it was. I'm sure you miss it and it's yummy fruit!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I certainly miss it Candice!

Susan @ MadebyMommainPA.Blogspot.Com said...

Lychee, What does it taste like? It looks very interesting. Sandy was a crazy storm/hurricane. I live outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and up here they kept calling it the Franken-storm because of the hurricane and another storm front merged. To the east of us it was much worse, we only got crazy rain for a few days.
So sorry you lost your tree:(
Following back from Sunday Sync!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot Susan! Lychee tastes like guinep and is alo called Chinese guinep. Hurricane Sandy was really terrible. I am so happy the hurricane season is over! Take care and have a wonderful week.
