Rose here. Just got back from the mainland and am so happy to report that lychee season is here again. After buying a bag at Mana this morning, I was munching on some at work and was admiring their beautiful color. I mean they taste just as good as they look, and I think that says a lot.
Even more gorgeous is seeing the lychees on the tree. There are some old growth lychee trees in Haiku that stand well over 40 feet tall. So tempting, yet so far away. But the gorgeous fruits next to the dark green leaves are a beautiful sight to behold, especially if you get a chance to start picking.
