(Litchi chinensis)
By Gayla Sanders
Native to the tropics of South East Asia, the lychee has been cultivated in Southern China for thousands of years. In the West, the lychee is probably the most recognized and popular of all Asian fruit. Throughout the early summer clusters of red fruit are abundant in Asian markets and street stalls, and can even be found in supermarkets that carry less than usual produce.

Lychee goes by many names including lichi, lichee, leechee, ***lechia (Spanish)***, quenepe chinois (Haitian), and litschi (German). In the West the fresh lychee is often confused with the dried fruit commonly called litchi nut. Although a large seed is found in the centre of the fruit, the name is misleading, as lychee is definitely not a nut. In fact, the seed is said to contain the same toxin found in its popular West Indian cousin, the ackee and is not to be consumed. ...\"
