Organic Traditions Longan Fruit
This tropical superfruit indigenous to Southeast Asia has been revered as a succulent and nourishing berry similar to lychee. Commonly referred to as “dragon’s eye” fruit, dried Longan berries have long been used in the Asian tradition as a medicinal tonic, known as Long Yan Rou, to strengthen both Heart and Spleen meridians and for calming the Shen in order to encourage a peaceful state with increased vitality. Longan berries are a source of Vitamin C and Fiber. Organic Traditions Longan berries are hand harvested from a small organic farm in Thailand. Collected when fully ripe, the kernels are removed and sun-dried in order to retain nutritional vibrancy and optimal flavor.
