Pg. 24-25 Litchi Cultivar Evaluation at Merensky Technological Services

The problem that the South African litchi industry is dominated by two cultivars, namely Maurtius and McLean’s Red, with short cropping seasons, is well known. In order to test other cultivars which may stretch the season or crop at a time when Madagascar is not a competitor, a litchi cultivar block was established at Westfalia Estate 1992. Further additions were made in 1993 and 1994.
