Re: What's Blooming

If you have an Asian food store, you can always find them canned - fresh ones are tough to get in all but the biggest markets.

the only place I've ever even heard of it. Sounds good though! I don't
suppose it's possible to grow one of these indoors, is it?

Subject: Re: [CHAT] What's Blooming

Asian subtropical fruit. About the size of a golf ball. Leathery skin
<br>that peels easily. Somewhat large seed [freestone type]. Incredibly
<br>sweet, juicy, pearl-white, delicious flesh.<br><br>Actually, the
size of the fruit varies by cultivar. Mine are about the <br>size of
golf balls. Last spring, I went down to Pine Island and <br>purchased
fruit from three different cultivars--two about the same size <br>as
mine and one smaller, about the size of a jawbreaker. As I recall,
<br>the small one had the best flavor.<br><br>Lychees are interesting
trees. They are handsome and small [mine's less <br>than 8 feet tall],
with glossy, dark green leaves. They produce fruit <br>in "bunches,"
much like a palm produces dates, so one can lop off a <br>single stem
and get, maybe, a couple of dozen fruits. And, unlike <br>dates, lychees
on a single stem all ripen at the same time, which is <br>why they are
often sold that way, by the stem.<br><br><br>On Monday, February 2,
