The present book entitled “Production and Processing of Litchi, Longan and Rambutan” is an accessible and up to date informative book, covering all essential aspects of important commercial crops of Sapindaceae family, i.e. Litchi, Longan and Rambutan. The important management practices and utilization at pre- and postharvest levels have been discussed in detail, keeping in mind, the need for commercial exploitation of these crops. The current trends and requirements have also been brought within purview in addition to critical perspectives that foster a better understanding of its R&D issues.
