From the soapberry family

Look what just made an appearance not too long ago!

Lychees, or otherwise known as Litchi chinensis, can be quite a hit and miss in this country – it is not always the case that you can get good ones. Most times, they turn out to be really sour, and not worth the money you spent –  one of the reasons why I stopped buying them for a long time, really.

The lychee season is still in its early days, and so far, we have only been able to score these really sweet, succulent, juicy lychees from the supermarket. Quite rare! They looked so big and so red that they literally begged to be bought. Easily one of my favourites!

I have not seen any in sight at the street stalls, and I reckon it won’t be long before they hit the streets to replace the rambutans.
