“You’re buying lychee??!” Jessica asked me incredulously in Hong Kong Supermarket. The longest standing disagreement I have with my best friend is over lychee. I still remember clearly the day she told me on the subway in NINTH grade that she finds lychee too sweet. Which I in turn found ridiculous. How can fruit be too sweet? It’s naturally sweet. It’s not like drinking a soda, or eating a corn-starched based frosting.
Though as I’m chomping on some lychee right now, I admit it is KIND of sweet.
What do you think? Are you a fan of lychee or dragon’s eye?
Update: So Nhi says that she has quite a bit of bad luck with buying unripe (sour) lychee in Boston. What are your experiences of buying lychee in your city?
