Lychee flower update with pictures
I just returned from the Spring break vacation. Unfortunately the flower that I thought is male is actually a strange female with 4 pairs sticking together.
good news is that I now do have some male flowers, although only a 3 or 4 flower pinnacles have males.
This one has one male, but some females in the background are pollinated, right?
This one has a few males:
This spike has, 1,2,3,4 ... a bunch of males!
from another angle
yet from another angle
all other flow spikes still do not have male, like the ones below. as you can see, lots of the flowers are still unopened.
some of the females are pregnant already, as shown above. here is one more. I think they are pollinated, do you agree?
... saw a bee again, not sure if it's the wind or bee but I guess it's the bee...
