  1. My BF has a Longan fruit tree in his backyard and this is the first year that it gave him fruit. I just eat a whole bunch of them. They taste OK but the lychee tastes better. However, with all that nutritional value I don’t mind eating some every day.

  2. Longan is one of my fave fruits…and it’s good to see all the health benefits of it…happy eating and live healthy!!!
