Lychee is now one of my favourite fruits after tasted premium quality lychee from Taiwan. It was so sweet and juicy, unlike sourly lychee I bought before. I kept some in the freezer (with peel on), it turned into 100% natural sobe the next day.
Every time I had lychee, I needed a hand towel ready by my side. After 30s lychee eating years I then learned how easy it is to peel a lychee without making a mess. Look for a line at the bottom of lychee fruit, place fingers (thumb and pointer) at both ends, squeeze gently and it will eventually crack open. Rule by the nature.
