Longan - Biew Kiew

Dimocarpus longan

Thai Longans

This variety from Thailand is well suited to the sub tropics where it receives cooler winters. It is a heavy consistent cropper with good quality fruits that come off later in the season than the Kohala. A close relative to the Lychee tree but much larger, stronger and more cold tolerant. The fruit is deliciously sweet
Other Names: Dragon Eye Fruit
