All About Lychees

Yesterday I suggested you serve a cool lychee cocktail for a Chinese New Year dinner party. If you found yourself scratching your head and wondering what on earth is a lychee, I'm here to help:

  • Lychees — or litchis — are one of China's most cherished fruits. They are small, walnut-sized fruits with a perfumed, creamy, jelly-like flesh.
  • The lychee is native to Southeast Asia and is cultivated in subtropical regions like California, Hawaii, and Florida.
  • Peak season for fresh lychees is June and July while canned and dried ones are available year round.
  • To eat, look for bright red-skinned fruits. Peel with your fingers and pop in your mouth as you would a nut or candy. Just don't swallow the seed!
