Diamond River Longan


Propagated from seeds, this is one of the many types of Longan trees that I am growing. The Diamond River variety is said to be a reliable producer. Once at maturity it should produce fruit year in and year out without fail.

Hi Linton, I noticed that your Diamond River Longan is going well. I am not too far from you and wanted to go one from seeds. If I can successfully get a plant from the seedling, I intend to grow it on the pot so that I can bring it into the house during the winter months. Do you have any tips on how to grow the Longan tree successfully based on your experience? Looking forward to your reply and thanking you in anticipation. Patrick

Hi Patrick Sorry but I don't have any spare Diamond River Longans left but you can buy seeds of it from Fruitlovers Nursery in Hawaii and they will send them here. It is not the best variety to grow as the fruit are a bit small. I do have a large fruiting Thai variety spare if you are interested in that one and it was grown from seed. There is a Longan tree in Springvale that has had fruit over Summer and they will grow outdoors in Melbourne. They don't need to be brought inside over Winter. But seed grown trees take a long time to fruit, maybe 7 - 10 years so it's better to get a grafted one in you can afford it as they will fruit much quicker. I had flowers on a grafted Longan this year that I have only had for 6 months so I expect it to fruit next year. Cheers!

Chose this variety based on internet descriptions of fruit taste. Extremely slow growing. Fruit rather small but nice sweet taste.

Have now (2016) moved it to a different spot with different soil and it is growing better.

Question:

I planted this in Autumn in Melbourne this year. Statistically this winter was the coldest in 26 years of Melbournes history and yet the longan plant bought from Daleys has nearly doubled in growth.  Have another one that hasnt done much through winter but spring has brought new flush starting now and what looks like flowers. Will update soon.

Longans appear to need a short dry season for best flowering, although not as pronounced as for lychees. They are fairly wind resistant and do better in a humid environment.

Like full sun, hot temp (20-35c), well drained soil

Longan Seedling

Pat1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1242 days 13hrs

Comments: - I have tried a few Marcotted varieties of Longan and Lychee but they have all died in my garden despite best possible care.  I have a few seedlings raised from fruits bought from the market.  These were very large fruits.  I was skeptical as seedlings are often inferior and the fruit may be small and worthless.  However, these trees are much tougher than the marcotted ones and they have survived the coastal gusty storms of Perth.  After 14 years it finally started to flower last year and had a few fruits which were amazingly large and fleshy and yummy.  Hoping for a larger crop this year but we have experienced record storm this year and a lot of the flowers are damaged... will see how it goes. I have high hopes for this tree.

Very slow to establish.  Hope to see better growth this year.  Purchased from Daleys.

September 2009:  No growth activity.  Applied sulphate of potash and watered in.

October 2009:  No growth activity, and no, the plant is not dead.  Applied a handful of dynamic lifter.

November 2009:  Cannot see any growth activity.  Continued with twice weekly watering and weekly inspection for pests/diseases. 

December 2009 to January 2010:  Not much growth activity recorded. 

February 2010:  Can see some growth activity this month.  The plant has grown about 5cm taller and carries newer and bigger leaves.  

October 2012:  The plant is much bigger now and looks healthy.  The speed of growth was noticeable in late 2011 and today stands at approx 70cm tall.  Has started flowering.

I haven't had use anything yet but it hasn't started fruiting yet either.

Question:

I was a bit concerned that my tree appeared to be dormiant but after reading the other gardening entries i have realised that others have experienced similar periods of non growth. This morning i have noticed new shoot so i am encouraged that the spring will bring on new growth as long as i can keep the water up to it.

I love fresh Longan fruit (usually a bit old and tatty at shops).  I'm not familiar with varieties, but Kohala sounded nice enough so I went with it. Was planted early Feb. this year ('12), and has taken 2 1/2 months to finally start growing - beautifully coloured, and new flushes growing rapidly.  Has been planted in path of water run-off, but is in a mound on a slope, and seems quite happy.

Spring '12: after initial slow start, has now doubled its' size, and at present appears to be developing flower buds. Too young to allow to fruit yet though.

A tough tree, but slow establishment; Special care is needed when new leaves come out on very hot days, as the heat can easily burn them. No problem to survive the Winter in NSW, just hibernate in Winter. Grow around 30cm yearly.

An exotic from Daleys planted last year and thriving. Again in the dappled sun on a slope in the orchard. It had a slight setback when we burnt off a pile of dead branches etc. near it {same as the Wampi} and the leaves were burnt. That was so upsetting however they have all bounced back beautifully. Thank God!! Looking forward to watching and caring for this plant. in the years to come.

This tree is finally getting a go on, it has done nothing for the past 2 years, and has a flush of new growth and looks fabulous at last. Slow to establish and much less vigorous than a seedling. 

The first crop in 2011 was delicious and the birds ignored the fruits.
