Lychee: How to store

When your FruitStand shipment of lychee fruits arrive, they will already be ripe. Lychee can be stored on the countertop for only a day or so, so we recommend refrigerating them to retain freshness for longer. Plus, they’re extra tasty when they’re cold! Lychee will keep fresh in the refrigerator for about a week, when wrapped in a breathable storage method like a mesh or paper bag. When freezing lychee, place whole fruits on a flat surface so they may freeze individually. Then, store them together in a freezer safe bag for up to three months. Don’t worry too much if their color isn’t as vibrant after freezing. The fruit inside will be protected and still taste delicious!
