Litchi what? The first thing that comes to mind is that they are probably a cross between lychees and tomatoes. You would be soooo wrong I tell you. However, if you are an expert at growing tomatoes like I am, then you should not have any problems when it comes to growing litchi tomatoes.

(S. sisymbriifolium), is also known as Morelle de Balbis. It is not commonly grown in the United States, the few people that do mostly use it for either decorative purposes or as protection for the garden. The fruits they produce are said to taste like a cross between a cherry and a tomato. If you are going to use them in your cooking then they go well in salads, preserves, sauces as well as pies.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • litchi tomato seeds
  • garden tiller
  • compost
  • manure
  • garden spade
  • organic fertilizer
  • tomato cage or garden stakes
  • garden hoe
  • plastic mulch

In order to allow your plants enough time to produce fruit, it is recommended that you start them in spring about 6 weeks before the last frost. This plant does not enjoy the cold, so make sure that from seed germination to seedling transplantation you keep them in a warm sunny area.

Work some compost and manure into the soil. Water at least once a week, and apply fertilizer every 14 days. Like any tomato plant, you will get more tomatoes from your plant if you support it using a tomato cage or garden stakes. Litchi tomatoes are ready for harvesting when their husk start to open at which time the fruit will slip easily from the plant stem.
