Lychee

Lychee... an exotic fruit from the soapberry family grows on evergreen trees reaching approximately 100 feet tall and producing red or pale orange fruits with a tough, bumpy easily peelable skin resembling large raspberries. Each contains white flesh and a single large inedible seed, which makes this fruit a drupe. Lychee is juicy with a distinctive, slightly acidic fragrance and flavor comparable to grapes.

India is the largest producer of Lychee in the world producing superior varieties having high pulp to stone ratio with high yields.

Lychees from India are first to arrive as they ripen 15 days earlier the ones in Thailand and China. Depending on the climate, location and cultivator the Lychee bears fleshy fruits that mature in 80–112 days . Fruits vary in shape from round to ovoid to heart-shaped growing upto 5 cm long and 4 cm wide (2.0 in × 1.6 in), weighing an approximate 20g.

Being a non climacteric fruit Lychee undergoes little or no compositional changes after harvest making it commercially essential to recognize the harvest maturity.

At Trade Box we know how a ripe Lychee should taste and understand that only a few commercially cultivated varieties attain this level of perfection in taste and quality when harvested or marketed. So to bring you "the best" we take care to harvest our Lychees only at fully maturity after which they are sorted, graded, packed and suitably stored.

Preservation tips for the customer:

Lychees are best when eaten soon after purchase. If you want to keep them for a week or so, wrap them in paper towels and store them in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator.
