Local longans from Tuaran
These longans are a cross between the old local ones we grew up with that were small, sweet, juicy with very thin flesh and the big fleshy ones from Thailand.
They are sweeter and juicier than the Thai breed and the only lacking is crunchiness in the texture of the flesh but the juiciness more than made up for that.
They are the same size as the Thai's and with thick succulent flesh. Very impressive. Now, I hope we get enough from our own backyards so that we don't have to import anymore of those laden with preservatives .

Words failed me here, so I'll let this picture speaks for itself.
