A fruit that originated in China and which is now grown in the Far East and the West Indies. It is about the size of a small plum and has a thin, hard rough shell that is easily removed. The white, juicy flesh surrounds a large dark-brown stone. In Europe, fresh lychees are available from November to January, but they are probably most often sold tinned, preserved in sugar syrup.
