These are litchi. They're a small, red, spiny Chinese fruit with white flesh the consistency of a grape and a poisonous, nutlike center. They're also close to 2 francs per hundred grams (about $8 per pound).

I've heard a bunch of people say that they like them, so I bought four to try this week.

Ew. I don't like them.

Oh, well. It was worth a shot, right?

These show up sometimes in our market..les petites choux LOVE these little fruits. I think they're too much work.

They're not my favorites either.
