Early Lychee season

  • a
  • 5

It looks like my lychees are going to be ripe 2 weeks earlier then normal, so I wanted to give you people a heads up that the season may be early. The drought hit the production of fruit for the backyard growers in my area. I don't know how commercial growers faired.

Below are links to the location lychees have been sold over the years.

    1. Just went to T.K. market on 8st in Miami $3.50.

      Also Farm to Kitchen said they're working on a way for consumers to place orders with them, but most likely you'll have to pick up your order around the design district. You can follow them on their facebook. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Farm-T...

      1. Just got some lychees at the Saturday farmers market at Biscayne Blvd. and 79th Street for $3 / lb. Good, too, the bag barely made it home.

        1. Here is a link to the TFG of SF (Tropical Fruit Growers of SoFla) that I came across in a PB Post article. Click on lychees and there are ~ 30 growers and purveyors to buy from.
