Catalog of Varieties
The longan or dragons eye
is the more temperate relative of the glamorous lychee. Longan
(Euphoria langana): Related to the lichi nut, the fruit is spherical
and varies from 3/4" to 1 - 1/2" in diameter. Many Chinese prefer the
longan to the lychee since it has a distinctive musky flavor and is not
overly sweet. It has a thin leather light brown skin that can easily be
peeled off the fruit. The edible part is a whitish, somewhat
translucent gelatinous aril which surrounds a shiny dark brown seed.
The flavor is sweet and pleasant. It tastes similar to a grape. When
refrigerated the fruit taste very refreshing. It is high in vitamin C
and Potassium. Picking season varies
