Kwa Luk Lychee
Ok everyone, so I finally put in a request for germplasm from the USDA for a special request for Kwa Luk air layers. I cited that is was nearly impossible to graft Lychees and requested that they send air layers instead of Scion wood. I doubt they will be able to comply but I figure its worth a try.
Just wondering if anyone else has requested germplasm from the USDA and what are your experiences with them? I know that north tree man was interested in doing some grafting of the more difficult to acquire cultivars of lychees.
Also, does anyone know why there are multiple Primary Identification numbers for they Lychees listed on the Hilo site? For example, there are several Kwai Mi Pinks and the pictures are completely different.
On a side note, accession N95-15 (HLIT-73) looks like a very interesting Lychee with a small seed and the flesh appears to be large and crisp. Thanks for any info anyone can offer!
