One of my friends im Florida told me that the Dept of Agri are cutting down all Lychee trees in Lee County, Florida due to Aceria Litchu (lychee erinose mite) & Florida is in quarantined?

This was due to a guy who brought plants from China which were infested with the said mites. First citrus, now litchis. I hope they are able to control this problem or else, in a few years it will reach California &all over the Mainland US.

We Californians wont be seeing lychee's anytime soon on the nurseries unless thee existing. :(

Canistel growing impossibly fine in Northern California, Thanks for the report.
Why is it always about what doesn't grow in Northern California with you?
It's nice to see your growing a good looking Canistel ( cut fruit picture?.
You know how to grow things well in Orange County. 
You have no idea who is growing Canistel and how it's growing in Northern California, but I guess if it makes you feel good continue to harp on how nothing grows in Northern California and add it too the list.


I live in SoCal San fernando Valley, usually  10 degrees colder or hotter than LA.  &have killed 3 yellow canistels during the winter (considering infusing all the good stuffs)... unprotected while my lucuma is hardy on the winter..
 In my area, it is difficult to grow tiesa unless u protect it during the winter...

I was wondering if ur canistel is protected or has a better microclimate in your place?

Hi Karen, i have been using Alpha  Chemicals potassium sulfate for a year now & no problems.

Here is a photo of my lychee from last year with fruitlets.

If u are concerned with gophers, try the squirellinator trap & once they are eradicated... u can plant in the ground.

I'm pretty sure lychees grow in zone 9b in China. The issue is heat. In northern CA they're not going to get enough heat for a long enough duration throughout the year. Not only would that make them slower growing, but the fruits are not likely to ripen.

(for those in southern CA, too much heat isn't a good thing either, in that drier climate with less humidity full sun in the heat can make the tree more prone to drying out, which also greatly slows growth)

My lychee has been in the ground for almost a year & it tolerates consistent 100 temps(117 f being the hottest) & 29 f temps during the winter -- unprotected & its growing nicely despite the lack of humidity.. I live in SoCal.



Wow -- looks great.  How often / how much do you water it?  And does your local water have a lot of minerals?

As for this 1, i treat this like a normal tree & i
 Use filtered water(attached to my hose has a filter in it).

I have killed 3 small lychees but when i added boogie brew filter and my organic amendments -- it seems to fluorish.

Would it make the slightest difference what so ever if they were grown organically or synthetically?

As far as this article goes, organic oranges contains 30 % more Vitamin C than of commercially grown.

Were these regular orange & blood orange grown organically or synthetically that were fused to these individuals?

22
None of mine germinated. My dad has it in his greenhouse. And it is hot and humid like mofo in there and ain't helping.
