Fun Fact: In Cantonese(lùhng-ngáahn龍眼) Longan translates to "Dragon's Eye" Because Of Its Appearance When Shelled.
Dimocarpus Longan, simply known as Longan is the edible tree fruit related to the Soapberry family of fruits such as Lychee, Rambutan, Guarana, Korlan, Pitomba, Genip and Ackee. Longan is suspected to originate from Myanmar and areas of South China with historically documented culinary and medicinal uses.
The inedible outer shell is thin, leathery and almost crispy once ripe and ready to eat. When the skin is broken, a juicy, translucent, sweet tasting flesh is exposed that surrounds an inedible black seed.
Longan is an antioxidant and a great source of vitamins, minerals and nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Iron, Magnesium and Potassium which are all essential to boosting the bodies immune system.
