Any taxonomic work on red longan?  This canít be part of dimocarpus longan.  Subspecies at the least?
Either way, I like it!

It will definitely great if it could have its own taxonomy, I never found some in any books or on internet.
there is a lack of information on Ruby Longan.

You will perhaps be able to answer a question that many asked on this forum. Does Ruby Longan seed produce Ruby Longan Tree? My contacts in South East Asia always said 'NO'

Mine is a grafted tree, I hope to have fruit Next year, I will be able to contribute too.

To verify, this is not the red ruby that everyone goes bonkers over online.  It's probably a older/original variety/species of it.  It has red coloration, but nothign like the full red you see in the ruby red.
