    They look like lychees.

    Yes you're right, they do look like lychees, but they aren't tropical. They're very disappointing to eat.

    No, I took this photo in a nearby forest. We don't have any arbousiers in the garen.

    This is a strawberry tree. But I expect you knew that phoebe.

    Yes! It's called arbousier in French or less commonly arbre à fraises (strawberry tree). The fruits aren't nearly as tasty as strawberries though!
