December is litchi time and there’s no better place to get this summer-time favourite than direct from The Litchi Orchard! We only pick our litchis as and when they ripen, to ensure that they are at their juiciest and sweetest!
Due to the difficulty of harvesting litchis, we unfortunately do not offer ‘pick-your-own’. Instead we do the picking and packaging, and then sell them direct to our customers, fresh from the farm.
Litchi season traditionally kicks off in the December holiday period and runs for a few short weeks into January. During this time we sell our ‘famously-fresh’ litchis on-site, direct to the public. Please note that the start, end and duration of the season can vary tremendously from year to year.
The Nature of the Litchi
The litchi is a fickle tree, and is known to be very environmentally-sensitive. This results in a phenomenon known as ‘alternate-bearing’ and simply means that in some years there are plentiful litchis and some years there are very few… and the prices usually reflect this supply situation. We do try to ensure sufficient supply by picking other orchards in the region but with litchis there are simply no guarantees!
One thing is for certain though and that is that The Litchi Orchard is your best bet when it comes to getting your annual fix of farm-fresh & juicy litchis!
