Lichas, Tropical Fruit

The gentleman who sold me these fruits, which in Guatemala we know as Lichas, has assured me that in other parts of our country are known by a different name, but was unable to say exactly.  Either way is delicious and although not obtained all year round, the wait is worth it.

    This is rambutan, but I think the name Lichas actually comes from Lychee.  It´s a recent addition to our exports, but this fruit actually comes from Southeast Asia.  Leave it to us to give it a Guatemalanized name!
