Tropical Fruit Discussion / lychee chlorosis?
« on: December 27, 2014, 06:31:54 PM »
I have seen some of my lychee trees exhibit some leaves which looks like either chlorosis or simple sunburn. The leaves are predominantly on limbs that have been girdled and mostly on the side of the tree getting the most direct sunlight at this time of year.

The trees all looked perfect until late november just about when flowering was expected. I was wondering if a late micronutrient spray would help this situation. Of course there are little to no flower buds on these areas.

I must say that I have had this much worse in the past and this year it is actually at a manageable level, but I'm already planning for next year. :) Any thoughts?

Well big for me anyway, as the most I had gotten in all the previous years was 2. This time I am just stoked to have almost 50 fruits for the season, almost all of them between 9 and 12 ounces, with one getting to a full pound.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / airlayering longan
« on: May 25, 2012, 11:48:08 AM »
When air layering longan there frequently is a problem with the layer healing over before roots start to form. Does anyone have their own technique to minimize this occurrence? I have tried in the past making an extra long cut or even leaving some of the wound to the air but nothing improves my percentage of takes to any noticeable degree.
