This very unique fruit – with its tough skin, white and sweet flesh, and perfume-like flavour – is a native of China. China, India, Australia and South Africa are major producer of the fruit today. Each fruit contains one large, inedible brown seed. The trees require warm, humid weather for proper growth.
Litchis are full of nutrients. Their Vitamin C, potassium, calcium and magnesium content offer many health benefits – including the ability to help prevent cancer. They promote healthy digestion, and are high in antimicrobial properties that help the body fight viral infections. The iron and copper content of litchis help improve blood circulation, while their potassium content helps manage blood pressure.
