Lichi


It is a fruit of Litchi chineasis, a tree of the family Sapindaceae. The handsome tree develops a compact crown of bright-green foliage. The leaves are compound, composed of 2 to 4 pairs of elliptic to lanceolate leaflets 2 or 3 inches long. The flowers, small and inconspicuous, are borne in loose diverse terminal clusters or panicles sometimes 30 centimetres (12 inches) in length. The fruits which are produced in clusters are oval to round, strawberry red in colour and about 25 millimetres in diameter. The brittle outer covering encloses white, translucent watery flesh and one large seed. The flavour is subacid. The fruit is eaten fresh, canned or dried. It is usually available in summer months. It subsides pitta. It is mild laxative. The fruit is given in acute constipation. It keeps the body cool and calm. It prevents sun-stroke and heat-stroke.
