Litchi chinensis is a tropical tall evergreen tree native to southeastern China that can gro to up to 49 ft in height. It is known for its great shade and delicious small fleshy fruits which were a delicacy in the Chinese Imperial Court! The fruit has a delicate pulp with a somewhat floral smell and sweet flavor. Since this perfume-like flavor is lost in the process of canning, the fruit is usually eaten fresh.
