Red Ball Lychee
« on: May 28, 2018, 08:47:03 PM »
Does anyone know anything about this variety? I have seen it mentioned on Australian lychee resources and trees sold here recently.

Is it renamed and if so what is it? Looking through info maybe Sum Yee Hong? Any information on chill requirements?

Apparently the fruit is quite large at 40g. Not huge but if that's an average it is certainly decent.

Thanks for any info!
