Grow lychee plant from its seeds

Lychee fruit is one of the tastiest and juiciest summer fruit which is available in abundance in summer months in our region .Whereas its white pulp is juiciest it also has plenty of health benefits from strengthing your immune system ,supporting healthy digestion of the food are some of the benefits amongst many other benefits to the body.

Lychee plant can be propogated from the leftover seed after lychee fruit is being consumed 

                                                                 Lychee Seedling

Things you'll require

 1 Container or box with a hole for airflow
2 Tissue Paper or Sponge 
3 Seed Of course

Procedure :

1. Firstly a ripened fruit should be picked for growing its seed take out seed from the fruit gently


2. Place the seed directly after washing it in a box or small container over a layer of single tissue paper or any water absorbent paper (as shown below  )                                                                                  

3. Cover the seed with another tissue paper spray some water so that tissue paper becomes wet             ,cover the lid of the container and keep it in dry ,dark place in the room.

Hole in this box prevents seed from fungus

4. After three to four days you could spot seed has been germinated now its time to plant it in soil.

See the sprout in the seed

Now its time to plant in soil ( soil should be well drained with a proportion of fertilizer so that seed remains healthy)                                                                                                                                      

I used small seedling pots to grow the seed any kind of container which has well drainage for                water in it can be taken .                                                                                                                                       
Lychee plant after 21 days 

Although Lychee plant grown from seed will bear fruit after a decade but its the sheer fun of propogating it which drive me to post about it .

Summer Relish Jamun/Java plum fruit

Summer fruits are good source for   re -hydrating your body when scorching heat takes away all fluid from the body .Jamun or Java plum is super nutritious food that comes in the summer and consequently is available till early monsoon .After acquainting myself how nutritious this fruit is,I am fortunate to have its tree  in my garden.

                                                      Ripened and Raw Jamun

Health Benefits of Jamun                                                                                                         
It is rich in iron and vitamin C  .It helps in increasing haemoglobin count in body and also purifies blood that helps in cleaning your body and makes skin glow .                                                             

The most important benefit of this fruit is it has anti diabetic features which help diabetic lower there sugar levels.In the summer season if diabetic eats Jamun regularly it helps in preventing from frequent thursting and urinating which is common   diabetes problem,since it converts starch into energy and keep blood sugar level in check.                                    

It helps in digestion and helps also cure urine retention problems.                                                   

How to grow and care of Jamun Tree                                                                                    

Jamun tree is self caring plant which needs good sunlight and manuring once in a year to bear fruits.It gives flowers in spring to early summer that develops into fruit and gradually ripens at the end of summer or onset of the monsoon season .                                                                                  

When to harvest                                                                                                                                      
Jamun fruit should be harvested when it turns into dark black color for sweetest taste.This is my harvest for today .                                                                                                                         

I am thankful to god for such bountiful harvest these Little things make life happier.
