Growing and harvesting

The lychee tree is an evergreen that can grow to a height of up to 20 metres. First harvesting takes place after two to three years. Lychee trees can last twenty to thirty years, and take ten years to achieve their full production potential. Lychees can be harvested when the fruit has reached a weight of 16 to 35 grammes, the skin becomes less prickly, and the colour of the fruit intensifies. Lychee bunches are harvested manually or using cherry pickers, before being cut off their bunches individually. The fruit is taken to the warehouse after harvesting where it is checked for quality, sorted for size and bulk packaged in boxes of two or five kilos. Next, they are transported to Nature's Pride, where they are repackaged in their end-packaging.
