This is the lychee? A lovely tree with sweet fruit in a paper-thin shell? 
I tried to grow this in Tampa Florida. It grows well in more southern 
regions: Miami, St. Petersberg, FL (which is right beside Tampa but is 
warmer because of water on 3 sides). Anywhere there is freezing 
temperatures below 28 in the winter is difficult for these trees. They 
are also wind sensitive. In marginal climates like Tampa, there are older 
trees that do well because the winters were mild during the years that 
the young trees were becoming established.
