Lychees have a red, firm skin. During ripening, the lychee changes color from pink-red to red-brown and when it is ripe, you can peel the fruit and a delicious, glassy white fruit appears with a seed in it. Lychees are juicy and deliciously sweet in taste.
The lychee is originally a Chinese product, but is also cultivated in several countries today. The fruit grows in bunches of 5 to 30 pieces on a tree that can reach a height of 20 meters.
