White, Juicy, Edible Flesh

It's been a while since I posted anything that lived up to the name of this here blog, so here ya' go:

I stumbled upon this while checking the AHD4 for Lohengrin (he's not in there):

longan: An Asian evergreen tree having yellowish-brown drupes with white, juicy, edible flesh.

Yellowish-Brown Drupes are obviously a species of tunnel-gobbler (with stats very much like kobolds and goblins), but I can't imagine who would so salivate over their consumption as to require such lyrical praise of mouth-feel of their devoured bodies. . .

And the capper: longan comes from the Mandarin for Dragon Eye.
