Durban’s Mistletoe – Litchis!

Yes! It’s that time of year again where we can start enjoying this beautiful, juicy fruit. Do litchis not trigger thoughts of summer and Christmas for you? Or is it just me?
Litchis, also called lychees (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) are subtropical fruit native to China. The fruit develops in clusters on sizable evergreen trees, requiring six to eight years to reach full production. Litchi trees thrive with ample moisture and well-drained soil.
