About the size of a large grape, each Lychee has a rough, rose-colored skin covered with small raised bumps. Beneath the thin and leathery peel is a fragrant pearly-white flesh surrounding a single black seed. The Lychee’s flavor is candy-sweet, perfumy and floral with musky grape-like undertones.
Treasured by Chinese royalty for thousands of years, fresh Lychees are slowly being discovered by Westerners for their ultra-sweet taste and exotic appeal.
Fresh Lychees are best enjoyed fresh out of hand or in fruit salads. Lychees are also sold canned in syrup or dried.
