The Lone Lychee

This is a lychee tree planted to be a bonsai. Somehow, that didn't work out and I have no idea what to do next. This year, it decided to bear one fruit. Looks delicious to me. Dare I or dare I not eat it? What do you say?

Hello, looks like I'm really late to the party, but I'm curious about growing lychees. How long did it take to grow? It's surprising to me since I heard they take 10-25 years to bear fruit. Have you pruned it before?

Lychee trees are quite difficult. They may bear fruits after a decade or more, and only every two or three years, or even less frequent. That is for Miami. I think they need to be in the tropics. Longans are much better. They fruit every year Miami. Search for longan in my blog. I never have time to prune my trees.
