Seasonal fruit in Southern China

Dave MP | | Jun 13, 2010 07:08 AM

I was in China (mainly Guangxi and Yunnan) last year in May and June, and I enjoyed lots of different fruits. I'm going back this year (in July and August) and I'm trying to figure out what fruits are going to be in season, and what I can expect to find (particularly in Beijing and Guangxi). Will there be big differences in what's available?

Does anybody happen to know more about the growing season in China for the following fruits and if/when they will be in their prime while I'm there?

When I was there in May/June, the main fruits in season that were for sale in Guangxi seemed to be:

Chinese bayberries
Mangosteen
Watermelon
Pineapple

But I am curious about the growing seasons for the following fruits in particular:

Starfruit
Mangosteen
Lychee
Mangoes
Peaches/Plums

Thanks!
