    14th June 2021 – (Hong Kong) Have you ever thought of picking lychees in Hong Kong? From June to July every year, this is the time to pick them.

    The ‘Poon MAMA Orchard‘ in Tai Tong, Yuen Long has around 70 cinnamon-flavoured lychee trees . The harvest is good this year. Most of the lychees are quite ripe.

    Harvesting lychee fruit doesn’t just stop with removing them from the tree. Lychees are very perishable, especially if they’re warm. The fruits will only keep their bright red color for 3 to 5 days at room temperature. As soon as they are picked, they should be chilled to between 30 and 45 F. (-1-7 C.). They can be stored at this temperature for up to 3 months.

    ‘Poon MAMA Orchard’ is located at Tai Tong Village on Tai Tong Road in New Territories. The orchard is open to public on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10th June to 5th July from 9am to 7pm. HK$99/person (same price for adults and children) including 1 pound of free lychee and addition HK$40 per pound.
