Beijing Food Prices -- Lychee

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Another cost of living post.  I never had lychee before moving to China. They are an amazing fruit: sweet, juicy, soft flesh ... eating them is almost an erotic experience. These cost 25.80 (US$4.13) a kilogram.   There were 35 in this package, so they're about US9.5 cents a pop ... let's call it a dime a piece. Should pop these in the fridge first, they're best eaten chilled.
