Exotic Fruit Market offers Lychee fruit grown in Hawaii, Florida, California, Mexico, Thailand and China. Lychee Fruit is wonderfully sweet and delicious. Lychee is a wonderful and delicious tonic fruit used by the Chinese as a blood tonic, to nurture the heart, and to add luster and beauty to the skin. Fresh whole lychee contains a total 72 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit, an amount representing 86% of the Daily Value. On average, consuming nine peeled lychee fruits would meet an adult’s daily vitamin C requirement. Lychees have moderate amounts of polyphenols, shown in one French study to be higher than several other fruits analyzed, such as grapes and apples. For phenolic composition, flavan-3-ol monomers and dimers were the major compounds representing about 87% of total polyphenols that declined in content during storage or browning. Cyanidin-3-glucoside represented 92% of total anthocyanins. Lychee contains oligonol, a short-chain polyphenol under preliminary evaluation for its potential biological properties. In traditional Chinese medicine, lychee is known as a fruit with “hot” properties

There are numerous lychee cultivars, with considerable confusion regarding their naming and identification. The same cultivar grown in different climates can produce very different fruit. Cultivars can also have different synonyms in various parts of the world. Most cultivars grown in the United States were imported from China, except for the “Groff”, which was developed in the state of Hawaii. In Florida, production is based on several cultivars, including Mauritius, Brewster, and Hak Ip.
