Longans

Longans

Longan is a tropical fruit that is native to Southern China and Southeast Asia. It is a small, round fruit with a thin, brownish-yellow, brittle shell that is easy to peel. The white, juicy flesh inside is translucent and has a grape-like texture.

Longans are rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. They also contain antioxidants, which may help protect the body against damage from free radicals.

In terms of taste, longans are sweet and slightly tangy, with a floral aroma. They are often used in desserts, such as jellies, puddings, and sorbets, and are also enjoyed fresh as a snack or added to fruit salads and other dishes.

When selecting longans, look for fruit that is firm, with a dry shell that is free from cracks or blemishes. The fruit should feel heavy for its size, which is an indication of its juiciness. Longans can be stored at room temperature for a day or two, or in the refrigerator for up to a week. To eat them, simply peel the outer shell and remove the seed in the center before enjoying the sweet, juicy flesh.
