Longan (Thailand) 500gms/tray

Quick Overview

Geography/History


Native to China and India, Longan fruit is a major crop in Southeast Asia. The Chinese dubbed it "Dragon's eye" because of its white eye-shaped mark on the pit. The Longan and its close relative the lychee were introduced to the United States by W. N. Brewster, a missionary in Fukien Province, China. Not doing well in cold climates, this tropical tree is often enjoyed as an ornamental shade tree. It produces attractive thick dark evergreen leaves and clusters of drooping fruit. Rather majestic and absolutely gorgeous, this grand tree now grows in America. Since there is a current demand for specialty fruits in the United States, Florida's compatible climate will most likely help to produce this fruit commercially
