(Thieu ）ティエウ種, Diamond (生ライチ), Ruby (ルビー) and Pearl (パール) are all originating from Vietnam – acountry shaped “S”. In English term, S means sexy.
AlthoughVietnam Thieu Litchi (Diamond litchi) cared under OTAS standads (origin tracing and authenticity system/standards) look hard and sexy, it can be easily peeled off by hand and the flesh is milky white with a sweet taste and aroma. Thieu litchi is also considereed to have existed in Vietnam for a long time. A Vietnamese legend also recounts that one of Vietnamese farmers in the period of Lac Long Quan King Dynasty once offered lychee fruits, which were regarded as precious fruit of Viet Nam, Lac Long Quan – was the ones who laid the foundation for the land of Vietnam in the ancient eras. It was said that after eating King Lychee (also named at that time as “King Diamond Litchi”), the King felt excited andt he Queen (Au Co) was then reported to have got pregnant and produced 100 children for the King. Since then, Thieu Litchi was well known around the world.
At the foot of BaviMountain, wild lychee trees were found by a French scientist in 1942. In 1970Professor Vu Cong Hau (late director of the Industrial and Fruit CropInstitute) and his colleagues discovered lots of wild lychee trees in Tamdao(Vinhphuc province) and Tuyenhoa (Quangbinh province) forests.
ライチの原産地は中国南部とベトナムであることは旧来より長期的に考えられています。1942年にフランスの科学者によってBavi山の麓で野生のライチーの木が発見されました。1970年にVu Cong Hau教授（産業および果物作物研究所の後期ディレクター）と彼の同僚がTamdao（Vinhphuc州）およびTuyenhoa（クアンビン省）の森林で多くの野生のライチーの木を発見しました 。
A Vietnamese legend also recounts that one of Vietnamese Kings ofthe Mai Dynasty once offered lychee fruits, which were regarded as preciousfruit of Viet Nam, to the Emperor of China. This evidence partly shows thatlychee can be considered as a native of Viet Nam lychee and that the climate ofnorthern Viet Nam, where winter is short, dry and a little bit cold and summeris long and hot with high rainfall and humidity, is quite suitable for thegrowth of lychee.
