Sweetheart lychee - Dig it up and it is yours!
« on: February 11, 2018, 06:49:11 PM »

My sweetheart lychee tree, which is about 6 feet and in the ground for 3 years, is making way for something productive. If anyone wants the tree and is willing to dig it up, please PM me. I live in Coral Springs.

I bought the tree as a 7 gallon with a couple of lychees on it but the tree hasn't flowered since. I guess it will, if planted where it is cooler than South Florida.

should keep in ground for another 2 years...you shouldn't let it fruit for about 3 years but since it did the 1st year probably put it back for another 2

I've found that lychees have a real tough time surviving transplanting.
