Longan is a small round brown/yellow colored fruit called “dragon eye” in Cantonese because it resembles an eyeball when shelled.
The fruit is sweet with a very aromatic floral aroma similar to rambutan and litchi and is enjoyed fresh, dried, and canned. Longan contains an incredibly high amount of vitamin C as well as B2 and potassium. Indochina Agriculture Processing, Ltd. produces local Cambodian mien variety for fresh consumption or canning.
