Longan

Longan,  also known as Dragon Eye is a tropical tree species that produces edible fruit. It is one of the better-known tropical members of the soapberry family, to which the lychee and rambutan also belong. The fruit of the longan is similar to that of the lychee, but less aromatic in taste. It is native to tropical Asia and China.

The longan (from Cantonese lùhng-ngáahn 龍眼, literally ‘dragon eye’), is so named because it resembles an eyeball when its fruit is shelled. While the tree is not often cut for timber, the wood is used for posts, agricultural implements, furniture and construction. The heartwood is red, hard, and takes a fine polish.

 

Mahalo for purchasing a beautiful wood piece from Nohea Gallery.
