Buah Longan Kaleng King Longan Fruit In Syrup 565g

£3.79

The tree of longan is closely affiliated to the more illustrious lychee and the fruit is often called the little brother of lychee. In Chinese, it is called the Dragon’s Eye since its black pit contains a small white spot in the centre and shows through the translucent flesh.

Like lychee, the longan fruit grows in drooping clusters. It is round in shape, 1/2 to 1 inch in diameter. The skin is thin and rough, with smaller protrusions than lychee, yellow-brown to reddish-brown in color. Beneath the skin is the edible part, the flesh, which is soft, mushy, whitish and translucent.

The flesh of the fruit is deliciously sweet, juicy and succulent. It is eaten fresh as well as used in many Southeast and East Asian dishes as snacks, appetizers or desserts. It is often an essential part of most sweet and sour dishes.

Longan is not only tasty, it is full of essential nutrients and possesses excellent medicinal properties. It has Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Iron, Calcium and Phosphorus in plenty, and B group vitamins in traces. It rejuvenates the heart and spleen, provides nourishment to blood and soothes the nervous system. It is also beneficial in stomach ache, amnesia, insomnia and dropsy.
