Does anyone know what a Lychee is and can we eat it on LDL? Its round with sone kind of shell and about the size of a large olive. I was at the whole foods store tonight and saw them, and the container said peel and eat and deliciously sweet. Wasn't quite sure if it was a veggie or fruit it didn't say. It did say it was grown in Florida. Hopefully someone knows or has had them that can tell me what they might taste like. I would be grateful......thank you  :teeth:

Lychees are a fruit.  I sometimes see them on a Chinese buffet. I know I've tasted them, and they don't have a strong flavor...pleasant, sweet.

I presume as long as they're not packed with added sugar, they'd be fine to eat.

It is a fruit.

One cup of fresh lychee fruit has only 125 calories, more of the antioxidant Vitamin C than oranges or lemons, about as much dietary fiber as an apple with the skin on and is loaded with potassium.

Just be careful that what you buy doesn't have added sugar. It sounds like you described just the fruit? But I know my husband had brought back some lychee things from a friend that were not.

They were in a plastic fruit container, like what they put blueberries or blackberries in. They were in no water or juice they looked almost like really small kiwis. I had just never seen them or heard of them. So they must have just been the fruit nothing added to them I would think, since they weren't in a sealed package. Thank you so much for your input, might have to try them just to see. :)

Hi all...

I love lychees and they're in season right now and the price is right!! like around 1.99 a pound.  THey are sugar sweet and covered by a sort of crocodile rind which you peel off and you put that white flesh lychee in your mouth and enoy...there's a biggish seed inside.  It's wonderful.  Now we enjoy them by squeezing the fruit into our bowls of LDL ice cream.  You can buy them now that they're in season and put them (unwashed in their shells) in the freezer -- i suppose you can also take the shells off but i don't see the sense in that until you're ready to use them).  Then in the dead of winter when you want some summer fruit you just take out as many lychees as you want and let them defrost for a half hour and they are WONDERFUL!!    I highly recommend lychees!!  Here's a link so you can see what they look like.
