Lychee fruit contains 66 calories per 100 g, comparable to that in the table-grapes. It has no saturated fats or cholesterol, but composes of good amounts of dietary fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants.
Fresh lychee fruits can be available in the markets from May to October. The Fruit must be allowed to ripen fully on the tree itself since the ripening process ceases soon-after it harvested. On the other hand, over maturity makes them turn dark-brown in appearance and lose their luster and flavor.
