Roll Call to All SoCal LyCHee People(shows pics please)

I was wondering If people in SoCal could post pictures of their lychee or longan trees?

Mine are not in the ground, but in larger containers. The Mauritius lychee is in a self watering container, the mix is sand and pine bark with some compost. Amendments used Sea kelp powder, Chelated Iron, powdered rock phosphorus, and liquid compost tea. I usually use diluted amounts about once every two weeks during warmer seasons.

The 'Kohala' longan is in a pre made container mix, with mixed in pine bark. Similar fertilizing schedule. I don't like the consistency of the soil, and will replace it soon though (breakdown over time). Longan did produce a crop of about 20-30 medium sized longans, its in a 15 gal plastic container.

I wish I could give you some info with in ground trees, hope I gave you some helpful info.

I harvested some longans, they were ok. I think they needed a little more watering though during the fruiting stage. I am really waiting on some lychees!
