Product Description

When Americans think of Chinese food, the dishes that come to mind are typically foods like egg rolls, chow mein, and sour pork. Fruit from China is not usually considered, though Americans might eat some imported Chinese fruit without realizing it came from China. Chinese fruit trees can grow in certain parts of the United States, providing both landscaping and fruit for you during spring and summer. These fruit are becoming more common in grocery stores across the United States, but they can be expensive.

Kumquats are the smallest citrus fruit, and they originated in China. According to Esther Sung, a writer for Epicurious, a kumquat is only the size of a grape, but it has an intense flavor. She points out that the fruit is both sweet and sour with the kumquat peel being sweeter than then inner pulp. They are a lucky symbol and are typically eaten whole rather than peeled.

The lychee (Litchi chinensis), also spelled litchi, is native to southern and southeastern China, near Guangdong and Fujian. It is a tall tree, reaching almost 40 feet with a full, lush canopy. The tree can handle a number of different soils, but it doesn't do well right at sea level or in elevations where it might encounter frost in the winter.

Lychee trees grow in small coastal portions of southern Florida; some areas of California; and Hawaii, although they aren't considered a commercial crop in Hawaii. The trees are somewhat able to handle drought, but not to the point of it becoming water stress. Lychee fruits have a red to brown peel that can vary in how rough and bumpy it is, white pulp, and a central, inedible seed.

Kiwi Fruit
The kiwi, which is sometimes known as the Chinese gooseberry, is one type of the in China. It grows in the Shaanxi region of China and is full of healthy properties including vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids. The peel of the fruit is removed and the green inner fruit is eaten. The seeds are also eaten with the fruit.

The jujube tree (Ziziphus jujuba), also called Chinese date, can grow in Florida and the southwestern United States from Texas to California. This is a hardy, drought-tolerant tree that Texas A&M says has few pest issues. In contrast to the humid environment needed for lychees and longans, jujubes do better in hot, dry climates with well-drained soil. The trees can grow to 40 feet and produce small fruits with edible skin and a stone pit. Eat jujubes fresh, preserve them or include them in baked goods.
