Longan - Chompoo

I love to eat one of my logans and then sip on a little red wine, it tastes just like cherry medicine for one mouthful :)

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.
