Preliminary assessment of rambutan clones in Australia

Hobman, F.R. (1984) Preliminary assessment of rambutan clones in Australia. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 41 (2). pp. 115-119.



Selected Malaysian rambutan clones were imported in 1973 for agronomic and acclimatisation evaluation. Some of the clones fruited in 1976 and detailed records were taken from the 1983 and 1984 fruit harvests. The fruit was readily accepted by the market with fruit from clones R156 and R134 being preferred. Clone R99 was the heaviest bearer in 1984. The recommended clones are R156, R134, R3, R4 and R99. It is stressed that this is a preliminary evaluation and, while encouraging, more work has to be done especially on yield recordings and clonal differences.
