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 :) | David O'bryan - Mansfield, QLD 06-Jul-2011

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.

Longan - Chompoo 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 133 days 18hrs

Comments: - Marcotted so it starts fruiting straight away. I pruned the fruitlets off for the first year, left some for the scond year - but I probably should just let the tree focus on growing instead. It seems a bit less fussy than the Kohala when it comes to the bore water and rarely gets chlorosis. It might be a varietal difference, or not.
