Another exotic tropical fruit - Lychee

The lychee fruit is a size of a big grape. When you peel off the skin, you can see the white or pinkish juicy flesh of a lychee fruit. It's very sweet and has afresh taste.
The texture of its flesh is similar to a grape. The fruit is rich with Vitamin C and Potassium.

This is the how I was introduced to lychee - someone just cracked a branch full of fruits and gave it to me. So, this was my first experience with the fruit. At that time i didn't even know how to eat the fruits, so the farmer that gave me the branch had to show me. He took the fruit, and put it in his mouth in-between his teeth and gently cracked the hard skin. As the skin broke, the white fruit came out and he told me to eat it. And it was fabulous!!!
