The Mauritius variety is the second most common commercially produced lychee in South Florida and is named after the African island of Mauritius, east of Madagascar, where the seedling originated. Mauritius fruit typically ripens several weeks earlier than other varieties and is easily distinguished by the pinkish green skin coloration characteristic of ripe fruit. This fruit has a large seed and produces a pulp that is juicy with a spicier, tarter taste. The Mauritius lychee fruit is relatively mid-sized with a small seed.
