A farmer has successfully developed the first seedless lychee in Australia, 19 years after spending US$5,000 on a single fruit tree from China.

Tibby Dixon, from Sarina Beach in Far North Queensland, has since developed multiple lychee varieties through selective breeding and cross-pollinating flowers over the past few decades.

His latest creation is a seedless variety, which he described as ‘very flavoursome’ and tasting ‘a bit like pineapple’.
