Origin and Producer
The tree of lychee can get up to 20-meter-high, and it originally comes from the southern provinces of China. Most processed lychees are harvested earlier and sold cheaper. However, the tropextrakt’s traded fruit from Vietnam is harvested at the same time as those that go to the fresh-fruit market. The lychees are processed with an optimal degree of ripeness, which results in optimal flavour and taste. We also have producing partners in Thailand, Malaysia, and Taiwan.
