Andy leaf tip browning is just fertiliser burn. Like my tree in this photo.

The sulphur spray is for enrose mites that distorts new growth and makes leaves curl and looks fuzzy.

Hey Doug - my little tree had a leaf browning problem.  from one of your facebook posts I think it needed a few Sulphur sprays.  What did you do about your browning leaf tips?

I had a great season too thanks to Susan's tip. Water a plenty as soon as it flowers.

When lychees were $2 a kilo in the last century, I used to put lychees out under the sun to dry naturally with shell on, no dehydrator, no flies, no ants, no preservatives. The dried lychees would keep for a year at room temperature and they were delicious.
