Longan - Seedling

Dimocarpus longan

Longan Kohala

A close relative to the Lychee tree but much larger, stronger and more cold tolerant. The fruit is deliciously sweet. Seed selected from the superior varieties. Even though not true to type the benefits include a vigorous tree making it more suitable for marginal climates. Cincturing at about 3-4 years of age can force earlier fruiting than normally expected from seedling trees.
Other Names: Dragon Eye Fruit

$17.75 ($17.75-$24.75 choose a size)

This tree had a bad start. It lost most of its leaves in summer and turned brown. Now that the weather has cooled down, it is bursting with new growth. I am so happy it is finally establishing.

Unknown as to seedling or not. Tag doesn't say.  Had a sad life.  Desparately misunderstood.  Stunted growth.
