Nephelium hypoleucum - Korlan
« on: November 02, 2017, 07:55:48 PM »
Anybody growing Nephelium hypoleucum?  What's the taste like?  How does it fare with heavy rains and high water table for part of the year... can it be planted alone or does it need cross-pollination?

This and Schleichera oleosa came in my group feed.. a quick google image search shows it mixed with chili pepper and fish  sauce, not sure how delicious these 2 fruits can be then.

Korlan grows in northern Thailand in hill regions. The taste is a bit is like lychee but more sour. Like other nephelium it has male, female, and hermaphrodite trees, so you must plant more than one to insure pollination.
