Product Information

“When a horse courier gallops across the land at full speed and the concubine smiles, who would know it is the lychees arriving?” This poem by Tang-Dynasty poet Du Mu shows how the fruit lychee, native to the Lingnan region, has been famous throughout history, and considered a symbol of Lingnan culture. The jubilantly red and fruitful lychee represents the harvest of a prosperous year. The freshness of a picked lychee is short-lived, as the ancient saying goes “The colour deteriorates in a day and the fragrance fades on the second day.” A fresh lychee is also known as danlì because of its fiery shade.

「一騎紅塵妃子笑,無人知是荔枝來」,嶺南荔枝從古至今富有盛名,逐漸成為嶺南文化的符號之一。它以喜慶大紅、碩果累累,代表吉年豐收的成果。荔枝採摘後的保鮮期很短,「一日而色變,二日而香變」。新鮮的荔枝顏色火紅,也稱「丹荔」。
