Lychee and Rambutan Now in Peak Season

These tropical fruits are at peak freshness and flavor

LOS ALAMITOS, CA (June 2016) – Attract shoppers to your produce department with fragrant lychee and eye-catching rambutan. These two top-selling seasonal fruits are now available in excellent supply from Frieda’s Specialty Produce in easy-to-merchandise clamshells, and in bulk.

Lychees from Mexico are available in 10-lb. bulk and 12/12 oz. clamshells. Rambutan from Mexico and Guatemala are available in 5-lb. bulk and 14/12 oz. clamshells.

“Based on customer requests, we developed these clamshells to extend the shelf life and make both lychee and rambutan easier to merchandise. To maximize shelf life, both of these fruits should be refrigerated and the clamshells make that easy,” said Karen Caplan, President and CEO of Frieda’s Specialty Produce.

“Our bright, new branding and fun labels for ‘Luscious Lychee’ and ‘Rockin’ Rambutan’ will attract shoppers as well as help them identify the often-confused fruits.”

Interested retailers, wholesalers, and foodservice distributors can contact Frieda’s account managers to take advantage of peak-season lychee and rambutan, and other tropical fruits.
