    Climate-wise, the tree would probably survive. Lychee trees require 100-200 hours of chilling below 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius) average daily temperature to set fruit in the winter. However, they cannot tolerate temperatures lower than 30 degrees Fahrenheit (about -1.1 degrees Celsius) for any longer than 8 hours. As I understand it, northern Iraq has cold winters and warm summers, so it seems like they might stand a chance. However, you might want to invest in some anti-freeze for the winters. Also, you should check with your local government to see if you can plant it. Some places ban certain trees.
