If you’re a fan of lychee, you’ll love longan. These fruits are similar to lychee and unmistakeable as a unique fruit.
They’ve got smooth papery skin (reminds me of a brown paper bag), translucent flesh and have a soft honeyed mineral flavor and one of my favorite fragrances. The seed inside is hard and glossy brown. I don’t think you can eat that part…
They’re kind of awesome in martinis or on their own! I hope you get to try some!
