Lychee: Another new fruit for me this week. After the ataulfo mango mildly let me down, I figured today would be a good day to try the fresh lychees I picked up at the market. I've seen plenty of lychee flavored items in restaurants (usually cocktails), but I've never had a raw, unadulterated lychee. It's a primarily Asian fruit that looks sort of like an oversize grape with a rough outer texture.
