Edelmira,

The tree needs lot of light to fruit well. Use a lawn type fertilizer such as 15-5-10 or similar blend in spring and summer. You may also want to add some potassium magnesium sulfate (K-Mag or SulPoMag) when you apply the other fertilizer. I suggest you also contact your county extension office to inquire about making the Lychee more fruitful. They have experts available in such types of fruit.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
