eating eyeballs !

Loving all this new fruit.... meet the Longan

The longan is a fruit very similar to the lychee. The shell is soft and can be squeezed until it cracks. The rest can be peeled off like a mandarine. As the Longan is small, you can eat it without biting. There is a big black seed, that should not be eaten. When the seed shows, the longan looks a lot like an eye-ball. In fact, “Longan” means “Dragon’s eyes” in Chinese.
