Fruit or Rice?

Definitely a fruit!

Got this basket of lychees today, termed as glutinous rice lychees, they are famed for a very small seed.. with thick, succulent and juicy flesh... certainly yummy!

Anyway.. the chinese words on the packaging left me thinking about how health claims can be placed onto the food packaging without any endorsement or scientific backing...

Occupational hazzard!

A China friend brought me a few kilos of these glutinous lychees. They are so sweet and the pips are so tiny! I'm going to have a sore throat. :P
