     The Fruit Tree Research Institute (FTRI) is dedicated to research that aims to sustain the fruit industry in Guangdong province. Priorities of FTRI's activities have been given to conservation of tropical and subtropical fruit germplasms, development of new cultivars, and improvement of growing techniques. Other research fields include fruit tree genetics, biotechnology, pre-and post-harvest physiology, and pest management. With decades' effort, FTRI has collected nearly 3000 fruit tree germpalsm materials, leading to the establishment of three national clonal repositories, the national litchi germplasm repository, the national banana germplasm repository and the national wampee germplasm repository in the institute.
