Lychee is a tropical fruit that is unique in appearance and flavor. It's native to China but can grow in certain warm regions of the U.S like Florida and Hawaii.
Lychee is also known as "alligator strawberry" for its red, bumpy skin. Lychees are round or oblong in shape and are 1 ½ to 2 inches in diameter.
Their opaque white flesh is fragrant and sweet, with floral notes. Lychee fruit can be eaten on its own, used in tropical fruit salads, or blended into cocktails, juices, smoothies, and desserts.
