Yep, you're right. They're considered fruit. I've only had green ones and they're not sweet or fruity by any stretch of the imagination. If I have a salsa or sauce with them there has to be something in them to offset the sourness they tend to have.
The purple ones are sweeter and I like to eat them plain right out of the husk.

I want to try a monster fruit! So interesting looking.
Lychees always make me think of eyeballs.
Longans do too (I've never heard of or seen them before).
