Thieu Litchi Vai Thieu


     The thieu litchi is only grown in the North of Viet Nam. The most famous and palatable of the thieu litchi are the ones grown in Thanh Ha (Hai Duong) and Luc Ngan (Bac Giang).

                                         

     The thieu litchi is bigger than the cage longan, and its outer cover is lumpy and a deep rosy colour. Like the longan, the flesh of the thieu litchi is also white, but it is thicker and more watery. Its kernel is very small and brown.

     The litchi season lasts from May to July. The thieu litchi makes a precious gift to send to relatives in the South by those of North Viet Nam.
