Re: Re: anyone know this plant?

If Jim hadn't quit on us I'm sure he would have caught it because of his previous writings about Lychee:

Lychee (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) is one of the most important members of
the Sapindaceae family that has over 2,000 species and 150 genera.
Related fruit from Asia include longan (Euphoria longan)....There are
seven species in the genus EUPHORIA, all from tropical and sub-tropical
Asia, but longan is the only one significantly grown for its edible
fruit. E. didyma (alpay) has small (2 cm diameter) round, green warty
fruit with shell-like rind, big seed and a thin, juicy, sweet, edible
aril. The tree is native to the Philippines and is widely distributed in
both wet and dry areas. E. malaiense (mata kuching) produces fruit of
similar size to the alpay and longan. Fruit have a tough skin that is
pale dull yellow with dark raised specks. The aril which envelops a big
seed is whitish, translucent and sweet, and in good forms nearly 0.5 cm
thick, although usually much thinner. Trees grow wild in Malaysia,
Borneo, Sumatra and the Celebes.
