LYCHEE DEL ICACY

ychee, the fruit itself bears the power to make anyone drool at the thought of it! But apart from its succulence, the fruit is a great combination of nutrients and its taste is greatly liked by both adults and children! Science suggests its name “Litchi chinensis”, but more commonly, it is known as Litchu all over the country! Now the question comes where do all these lychees come from? It is northern part of Bengal where lychees are grown in abundance! Dinajpur is a blessed land to favour the maximum yield of rice, lychees and other crops. During this season the trees sprout out with lychees. Each of the trees seems to get dressed on with dots of red ornaments, and that is how this part of Bangladesh radiates out its beauty. Not only its taste sticks to the mouth, but also its unique appearance and flavour is what makes it even more delicious. People out there might be wondering the good and bad sides of having lychee, but to ensure you, I must say that its good sides surely overweigh its bad sides. Research studies suggest that oligonol is found abundantly in lychee fruit. Oligonol is thought to have anti-oxidant and anti-virus actions. Litchi, like citrus fruits, is an excellent source of vitamin C. Further, it is a very good source of B-complex vitamins and also carries a very good amount of minerals like potassium and copper. Okay, now let’s talk about its variation. Though there are a lot of varied species of lychee, the mainly cultivated ones are the traditional Lychee, China-3 lychee and a different type of lychee locally called as ‘Bedana Lichu’. Mainly the China 3 lychee is very popular, due to its fleshiness and great taste. So, the next thing anyone can wonder about is the price. Well, lychees are sold all over the country at various ranges of price and are mainly sold as per piece policy. Not to mention, lychees are cheaper in Dinajpur than any other part of the country. So nothing to wonder about, if you really want to eat lychee to your heart’s content, then plan a trip to Dinajpur and pay a visit to the Lychee gardens in Birol. Lychee gardens here belong to families as a heirloom. Farmers have been dependent on cultivating lychee for years. Fruit dealers from all over the country gather around these gardens at this time to buy lychees directly from the trees and then, transport them all over Bangladesh. Not only you can eat a lot of lychees here, but also you can enjoyably spend a whole day roaming around through the gardens. Yes, Dinajpur offers you the opportunity to pluck lychees directly from the trees and guess what, you don’t actually have to pay for those lychees. Because people here are very welcoming and congenial! So, what are you waiting for? If you want to feast your eyes with the enchanting sights of lychee gardens located in Dinajpur, just get on the bus.  e
