- Lychee is best enjoyed as soon as you purchase—so when you get home, enjoy immediately for peak flavour and ripeness!
- Be sure to inspect your lychee before eating. Check the tell-tale colouring – pink red or red rinds are good but anything green or yellow is a sign that is it under-ripe.
- Lychee, longan, and rambutan have very similar flavours but slightly different textures! Try each one to see which one you like best.
- Use your thumb to pierce the skin of a lychee and gently peel away the shell to get to the juicy arils. Be careful not to eat the seed!
