    Does anyone have an idea how I would calculate lychee nuts? (Also spelled litchee) One of my favourite fruits but have no clue how to calculate them.

    I simply wash them (just to get off any dirt and stuff), peel off the husk and eat the meat of the fruit. Don't eat the nut - not very tasty. [img]graemlins/ugh.gif[/img] It's very juicy, sweet, and almost fragnant. I know some people put them through their juicer and have lychee juice. You can use them in fruity deserts. I like them plain and on their own. One of my favourite fruits. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    btw: can I add how envious I am of you! having these wonderful fruits growing in your backyard! WOW!

    I just looked this up online.

    A 3 1/2 oz. serving (about 10 fruits) contains 66 calories.
