Lychees are oval-round and petite, roughly the size of a walnut, and their leathery skin is covered with tiny spikes. Young lychee fruits start out green, and as they mature, they become blushed with pink and eventually turn a bright red. The firm yet gelatinous pulp is chewy and juicy with a sweet, fruity flavor, like a cross of strawberry and watermelon with a touch of pineapple-like acidity. Lychees are also fragrant with a tropical scent and a hint of roses.
You can use Lychees in cocktails, desserts and create ice creams and teas. Lychees pair well with the following items: mango, coconut, bananas, passion fruit, honey, oranges, blueberries, grapefruit, and pineapple.
You can store lychees in a plastic bag in the refrigerator and eat them within a week.
