Lychees Key facts A member of the soapberry family, the lychee is a tropical and subtropical tree grown in Asia, Southern Africa and Mexico. They are nutritionally rich in vitamin C, copper, phosphorus and potassium, as well as antioxidant polyphenols. Just nine lychees fulfils an adult's daily requirement of vitamin C.

Lychees have wonderfully fragrant, lucid white flesh surrounding a large stone inside a finger-peelably thin shell.

To prepare this juicy little fruit, peel off the papery skin, slice the fruit round the middle, separate it into halves and discard the stone. Prepared this way, they are dramatically alluring with blueberries, or serve them whole to shell and eat at the table
