LONGAN - SEEDLING

Longan KohalaBotanical Name: Dimocarpus longan
Description

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.

Perhaps a tie with my Pomegranate in relation to being my favourite fruit tree.

Has some sun damage on the lower leaves and some new growth sprouting out the top.

I have sprayed all my fruit trees with 'Drought shield' from Yates, and it is working really well to protect new growth and keep moisture in the plant on very hot days. I would recommed this product to others.

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 452 days 19hrs

Comments: - This tree is now about 10yrs old and still hasn't had fruit yet. It got it's very first flowers this summer, only a very few, but maybe next year it will get started properly. I think this selection might be chill-sensitive as it get's the winter yellows - which disappear once the weather warms up again in Spring.
This tree was relocated from up north, with us, and has been planted here since 2012.

Planted: 2008

Height 5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Balanced organic Acid lovers, sometimes inorganic acid lovers, alternating with slow release organic chook pellets. Little and often. Suphur in early spring and iron sulphate - when pH indicates.

Longan is one of my favourite fruits. I am not sure how well it will cope in Melbourne's weather but definetly worth a try. I will be planting it against the north facing fence for maximum heat and sunlight.

I haven't had use anything yet but it hasn't started fruiting yet either.

Question:

I was a bit concerned that my tree appeared to be dormiant but after reading the other gardening entries i have realised that others have experienced similar periods of non growth. This morning i have noticed new shoot so i am encouraged that the spring will bring on new growth as long as i can keep the water up to it.

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.

Canned longon is so good that I wonder if it's worth growing the tree if it's difficult?

An exotic from Daleys planted last year and thriving. Again in the dappled sun on a slope in the orchard. It had a slight setback when we burnt off a pile of dead branches etc. near it {same as the Wampi} and the leaves were burnt. That was so upsetting however they have all bounced back beautifully. Thank God!! Looking forward to watching and caring for this plant. in the years to come.
