General Information

The fresh fruit has a delicate, whitish pulp with a perfume flavor that is lost in canning, so the fruit is mostly eaten fresh.
The outside of the fruit is covered by a pink-red, roughly-textured rind that is inedible but easily removed to expose a layer of sweet, translucent white flesh.

The Lychee contains on average a total 72 mg of Vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit.[10] On average nine lychee fruits would meet an adultís daily recommended Vitamin C requirement.
A cup of Lychee fruit provides, among other minerals, for a 2000 Calorie diet, 14%DV of copper, 9%DV of phosphorus, and 6%DV of potassium.
Lychees are low in saturated fat and sodium and are cholesterol free (like all plant-based foods) . Most of the energy in a lychee is in the form of carbohydrate (sugar). Lychees are high in polyphenols, containing 15% more than grapes, a fruit commonly referenced as high in polyphenols. On the phenolic composition, flavan-3-ol monomers and dimers were the major found compounds representing about 87.0% of the phenolic compounds that declined with storage or browning. Cyanidin-3-glucoside was a major anthocyanin and represented 91.9% of anthocyanins. It also declined with storage or browning. Small amounts of malvidin-3-glucoside were also found.
