  • Dimocarpus longan, commonly known as the longan, is a tropical tree that produces edible fruit. It is one of the better-known tropical members of the soapberry family (Sapindaceae). Longan is widely cultivated in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Australia, and Hawaii. It is an important tropical/subtropical evergreen fruit tree that has a diploid genome (2n = 2x = 30) and belongs to the family Sapindaceae. China's longan acreage and production rank first, accounting for 70% and more than 50% of the world's acreage and production, respectively[1][1] .
