Grower guide for lychee grading (LY16003)

Key research provider: Australian Lychee Growers Association
Publication date: Wednesday, August 1, 2018

What was it all about? 

This short project was tasked with bringing together the various lychee grading standards in existence, to formulate an overall guide for Australian lychee growers. The completed guide can be downloaded here.

The resource outlines the industry’s handling requirements for pre- and postā€harvest fruit, the grading specifications for first grade, premium and export fruit, and the specifications for fruit into second-grade cartons. It also included images and information on various defects and pest damage affecting lychee, and the subsequent grading requirements. Its implementation will ensure the lychee industry is able to consistently present good-quality fruit to domestic and export markets and consumers.
