Sourcing Fresh Lychee

I've always loved fresh lychee. Last year, I couldn't find them ANYWHERE in my podunk city. After combing the asian markets and glowering at friends who live near suppliers, I've sworn to never live without them again. Can any of you lovely people recommend a source?

Search for "fresh lychee fruit" at Google/Bing/Yahoo and a number of online vendors will be listed.

Hi cv! I'm looking for personal recommendations before I put down the big bucks. There are oodles of fruit vendors with sketchy websites to choose from....

The fresh ones are great but I like the canned ones too, especially with Lychee flavored Vodka. Makes a great martini.

HECK YES. My favorite sushi restaurant does just that, a lychee martini with clementine vodka, lychee liqueur, lychee puree, lime juice.

Have you asked the Asian market if they can order them for you? I've special ordered from grocery stores for items I don't see out or on the shelves and they have always come through. Just a thought. BB
