Lychee from seed

here is my lychee that I grew from seed.

any tips on how to grow lychees? how many years should i wait for it to reach maturity and will i get fruits from it even if our temps here is 28-30C average?

1. Lychee don't come true from seed, so only time would tell what it would be like.
2. It will get about 40' tall before it is done growing.
3. It will probably be at least 8-10 years before it starts bearing from seed if at all.
4. Your temps are a little, low so, maybe yes, maybe no.

he means the fruit of the young plant won't necessarily be anything like the fruit from the parent plant.
