Lychee

I found this fruit by accident quietly lying among melons, plums and kiwis. Its name is lychee and it comes from Asia.

It has shell hard as a cone but inside it is fleshy and sweet. It is nice.

If you are curious, you can learn more about the lychees in Wikipedia.

  2. I LOVE LYCHEES! We get them from the Indian store in downtown Minneapolis whenever we can.

    Lychee juice is also quite good.

  5. when i was a teenager in florida, my friends and i got word of a lychee tree planted in some sleepy neighborhood and decided to raid it peak season. i remember climbing up into it and shaking the branches until it rained lychees all over my friend. then i got down and we scrambled to gather them all up before someone caught on to our masterful exotic fruit theft.
