Fantastic Foods - Lychee

Lychee is a awesome fruit found in southern China. It is also spelled "Litchi". (which I think is better :]) Anyways, there are over 70 different types of lychee - wow thats alot!

In the early days, according to legends, ancient devotees have consumed 300 to 1,000 litchi per day. You know what they were busy doing all day, eating lychee.

Also, lychee is being used as medicine for tumors and enlarged glands - like your tongue - so next time your tongue enlarges eat lychee (if you can...).

Oh and the fruit is made into juice so next time you go to the grocery store buy some lychee juice if they have it instead of boring old orange juice. And if they don't have it go up to the customer service desk and tell them to special order it... because all stores can order it for you!
