Aussie Fruit Box



Lychee, also spelled as Litchi, is a tropical fruit that is native to Southern China but is now cultivated in many other parts of the world, including Southeast Asia, India, South Africa, and Australia. It is a small, round fruit with a rough, spiky red or pinkish-brown outer skin that is easily removed to reveal a sweet, translucent white flesh inside.

Lychee has a delicate floral flavor with a sweet, slightly tangy taste. It is often enjoyed fresh as a snack or used in various culinary applications, including desserts, drinks, and savory dishes. In Asian cuisine, lychee is often paired with other tropical fruits like mango and pineapple and used in dishes like fruit salads and smoothies.

Lychee is also a good source of various vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and copper. Some studies suggest that lychee may have certain health benefits, such as improving digestion, boosting immunity, and promoting healthy skin.

Lychee season typically runs from May to October, depending on the region, and the fruit is generally available fresh in markets during this time. To select ripe lychees, look for fruits that are firm with a bright red color and no blemishes or soft spots. Lychees are best stored in the refrigerator and should be consumed within a few days of purchase.
