May I ask if you're able to provide more info regarding that facebook link?

In Vietnam longan is cultivated very widely thus there are many trees produce fruits off-season, all year round hence the local name "nhn bốn ma". Those fruits can be sold with higher price. I believe it is just normal longan (Dimocarpus longan).

Look out for Longan Lada, it's known for fruiting 3/4 times a year in tropical weather....

I bought one from ong nursery a few years ago with flower but never set fruit. It even have not bloomed at all after that. I have no idea if it actually four - season as its name.
