Nice tree, takes a bit to get them started though, they seem to like heavy mulching, and fairly consistent applications of liquid fertilizer, however there is no fruit just yet, but it did have flowers last year 2015.

Not a native Lychee, just don't know how to go back to start of this particular record.
