Longan: The Tree with the Dragon's Eyes
Rising skyward, the ancient Longan Tree is a thing of beauty. Originating in Southeast Asia, its thick branches stretch high and wide, hoisting countless green leaves that create its impressive canopy. Reaching heights of 40 feet, it makes a great specimen or shade tree and is the perfect center piece for your yard. Complementing the deep green color of its leathery leaves is the Longan Fruit itself. Hanging in heavy clusters, the reddish brown fruit are perfectly round and when shelled said to resemble the eyes of a dragon.
He's not Lychee, He's my Brother
If you enjoy the sweet, candy-like taste of the Lychee, you'll love the Longan fruit. Similar in size and appearance to the Lychee, it's been nicknamed 'Lychee's Little Brother'. But the Longan has a sweet fruit flavor all its own. Its whitish, almost translucent flesh has an unparalleled sweetness with a hint of musk. The fruit is nearly perfectly spherical, somewhat larger than a grape and has been compared in taste to a mango. Its incredible flavor lends itself well to use in desserts, candies, marmalades-even soups. But the best way to enjoy the Longan is right off the tree, fresh out of the easy-to-remove shell.
One bite of a Longan and you'll be glad this tree is such a reliable and heavy producer. Don't delay. Get your Longan Tree today.
Longan Tree Pollination
Longan Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Longan Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Arrived healthy very well packed. I planted it using the Root Rocket packet and the growth was almost unbelievable.Im glad i bought extra Root Rocket for future planting. I can buy these trees at local nurseries but im glad i did not.
Much larger than I thought. The tree arrived in great condition. Roots were all intact. No fungus condition but I'll treat anyways because when a new tree arrives to my backyard a fungus or spider mite seems to turn up. This is such a cute tree. Cant wait to see it grow.
