Pg. 12-14 Pollination and Fruit-Set in Litchi Chinensis Sonn

This report supplies information about the longevity of litchi pollen under different storage conditions. The best results were obtained where the pollen was dried and stored at 4 °C. A misinterpretation about the relation between aril development and the obturator, as was published in a previous report by the authors, is brought up to date. Preliminary results of fruit-set, after self- and reciprocal cross-pollinations between the cultivars Mauritius and Madras are also supplied.
