Longan fruit when directly translated is pronounced as "long yan" meaning dragon's eye. Its unique name comes from the physical appearance of the fruit when the shell is removed. The clear jelly-like texture along with its circular shape shares a resemblance with an eyeball.
Good longan fruit is valued by its size, sweetness, and juice concentration. It is commonly found in most Asian recipes including beverages. Longan is even considered as a food therapy ingredient that aids with relaxation.
