Dried Longan Fruit 龙眼肉 (Long Yan Rou) is a firm favourite throughout Asia for being deliciously sweet and juicy - quite similar to grapes!
In southern Asia, Longan grows in abundance due to the tropical climate and sandy soil.
They are related to other exquisite stoned fruits such as lychees and rambutans - each having inedible shells which encase an indulgent sweet fruit.
Longan translates to 'dragon eyes', and was named this because the black stone is visible through the translucent fruit, resembling the eye of a dragon.
Dried Longan Fruit are herbs which may assist with digestion, boosting metabolism/energy production, aid digestion, bloating, constipation, cramps, promote cardiovascular health, control blood pressure levels, improve skin health/anti-aging effects, help with repair of skin tissue and treat women's blood deficiency.
