Lychee, scientifically known as Litchi chinensis is native to the lowlands of southern China. All of our lychee is sourced locally from south Florida. This fruit is highly sought after for the pleasurable way of cracking open the fruit and consuming its flesh. Lychee has a one of a kind, sweet and fragrant taste that drips a sugary juice upon cracking its rough shell. There are multiple varieties grown here in South Florida with their own characteristics, however they all boast the same unique flavor that makes lychee well known.
Lychee is loaded with invigorating antioxidants and flavonoids, vitamins like vitamin C and B make this fruit a healthy treat. The season for Lychee is short and greatly anticipated, available from March-May. Some years the trees do have off years and do not produce much fruit.
Fun Fact: Lychee requires cold weather during the winter for the successful development of flowers, and warm, moist weather with high temperatures during the Spring for quality fruit.
