Longan Blossoms & Fruit

11.13 Longan Blossoms & Fruit 1

It's always a mystery to me how these blossoms can become...

The longan tree blossoms in May.

By September, I start getting eager to see the green fruit.

They're not ready to eat until November.

Longans fresh picked off the tree are so crunchy and delicious.

  1. Where do you get these trees to bear fruit? I like Longan, but the ones I bought from the store are not so good, even though they are not that cheap either :( I am sure the fresh ones taste the best, but wonder if the fruit has much "meat" to it, or mostly is the seed?

  2. Co Toan,
    My family buys our fruit trees from Mimosa Nursery in East LA. There's quite a bit of meat and they have a wonderful crunch. I'll take more photos so you can see the inside.
