If you envision greener pastures through rose-tinted glasses, grow Sri Chompoo ‘Pink’ Longan. This variety bears classic tan clusters of Longan fruits that have rose-tinted flesh and a smaller seed than other Longan types.

Longan will fill the gardening gaps for those who yearn for the lush forests, ornate temples, and storied ruins of Thailand, without the plane ticket.  A close relative of the classic Asian dessert fruit Lychee, Longan fruit can be enjoyed fresh off the tree, or chilled and prepared for desserts, candy, or canning. 

You will cherish the vigorous growth tendencies of the Longan, with proper establishment in well-drained soil that can hold nutrients and moisture. Fast-growing Longan trees will quickly reward gardeners with a statuesque height, which can be admired under a dense canopy of glossy, evergreen leaves. Establish the Longan with generous watering in its first couple of years, and enjoy bundles of fruit for its entire life. Longan trees will fare best in subtropical climates with a distinct cool season, which will be its prime flowering period.
