Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / .

Hi, I germinated 25 lychee seeds on July 4th and have been thinning them out over the course of these past 2 months, but this one tree is particular is impressing me far more than anything else.
At 74 days old: it has 11 leaves, experienced 4 flushes, is 10 inches tall, and is currently preparing for yet another flush.

Google says lychee trees commonly take 4-5 years to fruit, where 3 is rare but not unheard of. Google also says I should expect my lychee tree to be 8 inches after 1 year, not only 2 months.

Has anyone ever heard of a lychee tree flowering from seed after 2 years? I absolutely love lychee so if anyone has any tips on how to push my tree as hard as I can, I'm open to it. Thanks so much!

Hi, long time lurker and first time poster.

First off, thanks everyone for pulling me back into this weird exotic fruit hobby that has taken over all my other hobbies lol. It wouldn't have been possible without these discussions remaining alive and people continuing to share their knowledge.

Anyway, I have amassed quite the collection since my first visit to this website, and I'm wondering if any veterans know of some suggestions to further my collection (popular or lesser known, I really don't care but of course I'm partial to rare fruit, taste is king for me though)

I've had my eyes on the Abiu and Abiurana for a while, Abiu is easier to come by, I know there are some people in the forums that sell the seeds but before I pulled the trigger I just wanted to know other people's thoughts :)

My current collection:
- Red Sugar Apple
- Purple Sugar Apple
- Atemoya
- Rainforest Plum
- Jaboticaba
- Blue Grape
- Uvaia do Campo
- Bolivian Mangosteen
- Cuban Mangosteen
- Mexican Mangosteen
- Lemon Drop Mangosteen
- Jambu
- Granadilla
- Feijoa

Thanks everyone! I'm not the biggest berry fan personally; my favorite kind of fruit is mango if that helps with any suggestions.
Greatly appreciate everything! And if you have a rare fruit that you just want to talk about, I always love to learn. Doesn't have to a suggestion <3
