Where to Buy Lychee Now

It's summer! Which means longer days, south shore surf, and ... lychee! Lychee farmers expect a bumper crop this year, especially compared to last year's meager harvest.

Where I'm finding the sweetest lychee right now:

  • Sun Chong in Chinatown, which sells plump, juicy Big Island lychee. $5.99 to $6.99/pound, at 127 N. Hotel St.

  • The Wine Stop: Every year, Liane Fu gets a shipment of Kaimana lychee, one of the sweetest varieties, from her sister's farm on the Hamakua Coast. She has some right now, but they are going fast. $6.99/pound, call 946-3707 to reserve.

  • Foodland's got plenty from Hilo, $7.99/pound, multiple locations.
