Good prospects for South African lychee season

Harvesting will begin mid to late November for the new season South African lychees. Derek Donkin, CEO of Subtrop said it is a bit early to accurately predict how the season would go but it is looking better than last year.

"In some areas we had a very poor crop last year, but those areas are looking better this year."

Last year South Africa produced around 4,500 MT, this is expected to be around 5,500 MT.

South Africa exports around 50% of the lychees, mostly to the European market, the other 50% goes to the domestic market.
