Viewed as a vegetable by most people.
Lychees are a bit iffy. Every once in a while I accidentally get one that is too sour or something like that. A good, ripe lychee feels firm and juicy, and is mostly sweet.I think I tried a lychee once. I can't remember the taste, I vaguely remember it being unimpressive and a bit unpleasant, but I know I didn't enjoy it. Though maybe we don't get good ones in the UK.
