Lychee

Lychee in Hawaii

Lychee is one of my favorite fruit trees that grow in Hawaii. I have early memories of climbing my grandfather's lychee tree. Perched in its massive branches, I would pick and eat lychee to my hearts content. If you haven't had fresh lychee directly off of a tree, then you haven't truly tasted this fruit in all it's glory.
