Lychee is a subtropical fruit originating in South China. The lychee fruit is about 1½ to 2 inches in size, with bumpy red skin and an oval to rounded heart-shape. Once the peel is removed, the flesh of lychee fruit is white or pinkish, translucent and glossy like the consistency of a grape. Lychee fruit is high in the antioxidant Vitamin C and essential mineral Potassium.
NO PRE-ORDERS FOR 2022.
THERE WILL BE NO IN STATE OR OUT OF STATE SHIPMENTS THIS SEASON.
NOTE FROM NAGA GARDENS
Lychee season 2022 has finally arrived, however, we only have a handful of Mauritius lychee trees that produced fruit this year. This is not unexpected since lychee trees are generally alternate bearing (one high yield year and one low yield year) - but this year the yield is quite low throughout South Florida.
We know this is very disappointing to those of you who have been looking forward to purchasing lychee this year.
Due to limited lychee production and overall cost increases across the board (labor, fertilizer, shipping material, and shipping charges) we will be raising the price of lychee this year. We will have limited lychee available for local sale. In order to purchase you must place an order online and pick up at our farm. We will periodically update our web page for available quantities.
Thanks to all of you who continue to support us! We are looking forward to seeing some of you this year and in the future.
In order to expedite your order, please have only lychees in your cart and select Local Pick-up at Farm and select Pick a Slot (Date/Time) during checkout.
To ensure the highest quality our lychees are picked the same day. Thanks for all your interest.

More frequently-asked questions
That's right. This ain't no grape. You can't just pop ‘em. You gotta peel them, but like everyone else who has tried lychee, you are going to soon start to wonder how do I get as many of these things inside my mouth as fast as humanly possible?
The trick is to not peel the whole thing—just peel off half the shell. Then use the other half as a holder, and bring the lychee to your mouth, then squeeze. Yum. Now do that 500 more times.

Can you freeze lychees?
Absolutely! You can put them in a ziplock freezer bag and toss them in the freezer. They will stay good for 6-12 months. When you are ready to eat them, let them thaw and then enjoy.
