A close relative to the Lychee tree but much larger, stronger and more cold tolerant. The fruit is deliciously sweet, bearing just after the lychee, so for Lychee lovers this is a welcomed taste variation to look forward to. A highly ornamental tree with beautiful green leaves and clusters of yellow flowers that have a wonderful scent.

Customer Comments on Longan Tree
No fruit fly problems . Only 2 to 3 years to get fruit for marcotted Longan . | R O L F - Bankstown , Sydney, NSW 22-Dec-2005
I am currently growing 7 longan varieties in marginal climate (50km NE Adelaide). Here Biew Kiew and Haew do better than Kohala (longer growing season and more vigorous). By far my best performing and fruiting variety is Homestead. | Jonathan - Gawler, SA 15-Dec-2006
