longan-fruits
The longan (龍眼 lóng yǎn, lit. dragon eye), is so named because it resembles an eyeball when its fruit is shelled (the black seed shows through the translucent flesh like a pupil/iris). The seed is small, round and hard, and of an enamel-like, lacquered black.

The fruit is sweet, juicy and succulent in superior agricultural varieties and, apart from being eaten fresh, is also often used in East Asian soups, snacks, desserts, and sweet-and-sour foods, either fresh or dried, sometimes canned with syrup in supermarkets. The taste is different from lychees; while longan have a drier sweetness, lychees are often messily juicy with a more tropical, sour sweetness.

Quotes

„As for “the physical form has no such form,” and “things have no such thingness,” physical form and things disintegrate before long, ultimately returning to nothing. This is observant insight, or understanding; once you can understand, you will naturally be detached from illusions, so delusions and random imaginations spontaneously disappear without having to be eliminated. Because thoughts in the mind are all empty, therefore it is said one “only sees emptiness.” This is a matter of transcendental knowledge, not run-of-the-mill quietism. “
