Embassy of Vietnam displayed the famous exotic lychees from Hai Duong Province, at this year’s ASEAN Food Fest held at LuLu Hypermarket.
The storied specialty Hai Duong lychee is said to have been planted in Thuy Lam village, Thanh Son commune nearly 200 years ago. Legend has it, the lychee tree was planted by one Hoang Van Com at the end of the 19th century. In his youth, Hoang Van Com specialized in trading fruits and vegetables from Hai Duong to Hai Phong. In 1870, during a party with visiting Chinese in Hai Phong, he ate a very delicious lychee, so he brought back three seeds to plant in his garden.
Due to the soil and climate in Thanh Ha, Hai Duong being suitable for lychee, all three litchi seeds sprouted into trees. Among those three litchi trees, there was one tree bearing fruit with an especially delicious flavor superior to the other two, which Hoang Van Com named as Thieu lychee. From that precious litchi tree, Hoang Van Com extracted the branches, propagated them, and planted them in his garden, and gave them to relatives inside and outside the commune for planting.
According to the media reports from Hai Duong, every year the lychee tree is full of fruit, which has a redder skin than other trees. And although the fruit is small, the pulp is very thick and juicy, and the lychee is very firm and sweet. The sweetness is rich, delicious and lingers on the tip of the tongue.
