Brewster

When perfectly ripe, the fruit of a Brewster Lychee is delicious. Originally from China, this is one of the most popular varieties in the United States, while also featuring the largest seed. The Brewster Lychee tree will grow well in a wide array of soil conditions.


Mauritius

A tropical and subtropical fruit tree native to China, the fruit of the Mauritius Lychee has a pleasant floral taste and is very sweet. While the outside is inedible, peeled lychee fruits have been used for centuries in China and Ugur cultures as baby pacifiers, due to their high nutrient content.

Kaimana

The Kaimana is a relatively new variety, and subsequently limited in supply. Its sweet and tart fruit provides a perfect balance of flavors likened to grape/rose or pear/watermelon. This versatile fruit pairs nicely with coconut, lime and other tropical flavors, and is delicious in a homemade Sangria.


Hak IP

One of the best pollinators of the Lychee family, the Hak Ip tree has multiple male and female flowers that open simultaneously. This variety is larger and sweeter, and has the smallest seed/greatest amount of edible pulp. It is also the least commercially grown of all Lychee trees.
