I would let them be, here in California best time to clip or trim figs is roughly last week in January (or after your last freeze).

Its serious lychee time here at my place, 1 out of 3 trees on the property. Pretty hard to reach some of these, the tree was improperly pruned a number of years ago ... but it still seems happy



1st year for a good harvest. I believe this was a brewster planted some years ago.

I enjoyed some earlier today & decided to pick a few more and eat now...  There are probably 30 more on the small tree for later.

These were very sweet & tart combo & so fun to eat with the clear plump juicy flesh surrounded by the egg shell thin shell.

Sorry, didn't have time to stop and take a picture till they were all gone.... :P




Wow, what a monster producer. when I was in Big Island few years ago, I saw trees loaded like this and fruits would be on the ground spoiling. Same for mangoes.

Great link thank you for sharing, also states that Sweetheart is the most consistent producer.

I am also wondering the same, temperature where I live can easily reach 100f in the summer and few days in winter as low as 45F.

Any tips on pruning lychee tree? I have a Mauritius lychee and a Sweet Heart. So far the Sweet heart is very slow growing so I think they need different way of pruning?

I only have sweet heart, I am looking to get a second variety , would you recommend Mauritius?

Best tasting variety and easy to grow in Southern California?
