Does this Lychee tree look like Sweetheart or Hak Ip?
I bought this "Sweetheart" lychee tree at the rare fruit tree sale in Sarasota this past weekend.
It was labeled "Hak Ip (in small letters), aka "SWEETHEART" in big bold letters.
The seller told me that he just buys and sells from the various wholesalers, and that the dealers in south Florida pretty much consider Hak Ip and Sweetheart to be the same thing.
I have searched old threads here and realize that the two seem to be distinct varieties. I have read that the original tree was an established cultivar from Australia (I bet a nursery in Australia that specializes in lychees could identify it...but then again, why would the owner of the Sweetheart Lychee trademark want to pursue that?!).
