As the harvest season for litchi — also known as lychee — is around the corner, Hainan province, one of the major litchi producing regions in China, is holding activities to promote the sales of the fruit.

The province is estimated to have a total output of around 190,000 tons of lichi this year, a reduction of 20 percent, Hainan Daily reported.

Due to the impact of weather, China, the world's largest litchi producer, is expected to see litchi production reduced by nearly 40 percent this year, according to Chen Houbin, a chief scientist of the National Litchi Longan Industrial Technology System.
