Lychee tree

skmillerJune 3, 2014

I have two Lychee trees. One I grew from seed (not sure what kind it is) that is about nine years old. It has never produced, and a Emperor Lychee that I purchased 11 years ago. It was producing when I purchased it. I have had several crops from the Emperor. But for the last three years, it hasn't even flowered, let alone produced. It looks healthy.... but it isn't just my Lychee. I have two a couple of friends in the same neighborhood and their trees haven't produced or flowered either.... Is there something we can do to make sure that next spring. I thought maybe I had trimmed it at the wrong time of year, so last year I didn't even trim it.

Live in Zone 10 in palm beach.

Thanks for anybody who can help.

Try the link below from Lycheesonline...Also what part of FL do you live in? did you have a warm winter...I had plenty of "chilling" weather for my lychee tree but I live in Central FL. I think trimming around the middle of July is suggested...Try the trimming tips. It worked for me last year, though my tree is only 3 years old...its produced 2 years in a row...not sure if its luck or the trimming lol...

As for your seedling grown lychee they can take a lot longer to produce than air layers or grafted...but I'm sure it won't be too much longer.

But, keep in mind even though you do all the right things....lychees are known to skip a year or two depending on your location and variety...sometimes they just won't produce no matter what you do :o(
