Tomatillo? I ve always thought of it as a vegetable. Am I interpreting the word right? Those green tomatoes used in 'salsas'?

If it s a fruit I ll try it!!!

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).
