Lychee seedlings can be planted in beds three meters long and four and a half meters wide. Seedlings can be spaced up to 12 m apart. Fruits are formed when a seedling is about five years old. It is advisable to do pruning for more fruits and apply organic manure twice a year. Lychee fruits  are able to retain their natural color only for a maximum of five days after harvest.
