LITCHI 

The first litchis were planted at Halls in 1926. Today Halls has
over 100ha of litchi orchards under management which bear fruit from December to February.

Grown in an ideal sunny climate in South Africa and Madagascar, these fruits of the Mauritius variety are sweet and juicy and superior in flavour to other litchi varieties.

All fruit is tree-ripened and harvested from our own farms as well as from our accredited grower partners who also subscribe to the sound principles of sustainable agriculture, environmental conservation and social responsibility. A very small window for a large crop sees the Halls farms and pack houses working through Christmas to meet their local and export sales programmes.

Delicious and juicy, these popular berries contain an impressive list of essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Litchis have no saturated fats or cholesterol, but are composed of good amounts of dietary fibre and antioxidants. The outer skin is rough and leathery featuring a pink colour when ripe. Inside, the pulp consists of the edible portion that is white, translucent, sweet and juicy.
