The Taste of Redland team and our family of farms proudly introduce the first Lychee Locavore Promotion. In addition to our consumer program, South Florida mixologists and chefs can now order fresh-picked lychee directly to your establishment, while supplies last. We usually harvest this beautiful tropical fruit through mid-July.
CONTEST FOR PARTICIPATING CHEFS AND MIXOLOGISTS
South Florida mixologists and chefs are invited to craft your tastiest culinary creation or beverage using exotic local lychee and participate in a contest to win a trip to Stowe, Vermont, the ultimate Locavore culinary and libation destination. This is a great opportunity to become part of a true local farm-to-table movement, and to support your local farms with Fresh-from-Florida Redland-Raised ingredients. Test your lychee recipes at your restaurant or nightlife establishment and then enter the contest at the Lychee Locavore Bash on July 21 to win the trip to Vermont.
One chef or one mixologist will be chosen at the Bash by invited tastemakers and guests who will vote for their favorite recipe. The competition is in the spirit of fun, so the more participants the better. The winner will be treated to lodging and airfare for 5 days and 4 nights at a luxurious mountain home in Stowe, Vermont. They and their guests will have a unique opportunity to learn about the history of the Locavore movement and experience some of the most amazing locally-sourced cuisine and cocktails.

Fresh whole lychee contains a total of 72 milligrams of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit, an amount representing 86% of the Daily Value. On average, consuming nine peeled lychee fruits would meet an adult’s daily vitamin C requirement but otherwise would supply little nutrient content. Lychees are low in saturated fat and sodium.
