If using Priority mail I'd probably just ship as clusters (stems attached), with paper or possibly leaves as some type of cushion.  If it's not going to be chilled and/or "treated" then any type of polyethylene wouldn't work in my opinion.  Trapping moisture opens the possibility of fungus and leaving the stems attached will give it a little more shelf life at it's disposal. 

I have ZERO experience in shipping these btw.  I just know what we regurgitate when selling them at my neighbors fruit stand with the whole no plastic bags and so forth.

JoeP,

Do you remember when you harvested the lychees?  Seetheart and Hak Ip (both usually small seed) are usually around late June where Emperor's are more around late Aug/early Sept.  Bengal is another large fruit/large seed, however I can't seem to remember when we harvest those.  Btw, this is the "norm" for central Brevard (whatever that may be).
