Thai LongansBotanical Name: Dimocarpus longan

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

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.

Planted: 2009

Height 1.1 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

any self pollinating longan fruit tree? Is this longan tree suit to plant in robinvale? The weather here can have frost in winter and up to 45 degree in summer.

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
