Nurturing Our Blood - Longan Fruit
Longan fruit is an exotic fruit that is extremely widely consumed in Asia, but barely known in America. It is eaten fresh during the fall throughout China, but is consumed as a dried fruit the rest of the year. The fruit is sublimely delicious to most people, but it is a unique flavor that some people describe as sweet and smoky. Longan is one of the elite blood tonics of Chinese herbalism and regular consumption supports healthy, rich blood all the time. Keep in mind, not all Longan fruit is created equal.
