I get occasional frost in winter (up to minus 2 degrees), while hot in summer.
What variety is better for me, the Kohala or Biew Kiew?
Thanks very much.

Hi Josefina,

Longans are better than lychees at taking a frost however will suffer.

The cutting grown ones like
Biew

or the Kiew
http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/buy/longan-biew-kiew-tree.htm

would be very similar and are much better tasting and cropping varieties. However if you were really concerned you could get a seedling variety like the Kohola seedling here:

http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/buy/longan-kohala-seedling-tree.htm

It is going to have a bigger root system and as long as you can protect it through it's first few years it should handle a frost much better than the other varieties once established.

Good luck :)

Kohala is more cold hardier than biew kiew. My biew kiew lost all leaves during last winter while Kohala was ok. Biew kiew is fine now and start to grow new leaves.

Ps. Min temp last winter in my area is -1.3c
