Lychee

image

The gift for a joyful life.

At least that’s what the Chinese call this little fruit. It’s also known as the Chinese plum or fruit of love. Lychee trees have been cultivated in China for over 3000 years and there are still more lychee trees in China than anywhere else on the planet. The trees are evergreen, imposing, live to be over 100 years old, and hold up to 200 kilograms of lychees.

The lychee is a genuine delicacy. Its pearlescent-white, juicy flesh is sweet with a hint of nutmeg and a rose-floral aroma. The natural vitamin C content of one ripe lychee is extraordinarily high.

What makes lychees challenging is the short harvest period, which lasts no more than five weeks. And that’s just once a year. But that’s why we’re here, to keep it in stock for you.
