Fresh and delicious, lychee (also called “litchi”) have been enjoyed for thousands of years in Asia. Cultivation of lychees dates to at least 1059 A.D., and perhaps long before that time --- these are not a new fruit of the world! They are, however, fairly new to the USA! This is a tropical fruit, which means it is harder to grow here in the Continental USA... we just don’t enjoy the type of weather here to consistently grow lots of great lychee. We are happy to finally taste what much of the world has enjoyed for millennia!
The inside of all lychees is the same pearl-white in appearance. Many varieties of lychee are reddish in outer skin color. FAVE specializes in EMPRESS lychee - a greenish color variety with a smaller seed and more sweet, juicy flesh. We think you will agree this is the best lychee you will ever taste!

Lychee contains good amount of antioxidant Vitamin C, Vitamin B-complex and phytonutrient flavonoids.
Lychee also contains a good amount of potassium. Potassium is required to maintain sodium level. Also high potassium is required to maintain fluid level i.e., balance electrolyte. Thus it helps to maintain high blood pressure and it reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack. Also it contains minerals like manganese, magnesium, iron, copper and folate that maintain blood pressure.
