Hooghly Today : seems to be -> Dimocarpus longan Lour. : Attachments (8). 12 posts by 3 authors.


This is Dimocarpus longan Lour. But, please wit for its fruits.


Surely some Sapindaceae but not Dimocarpus longan


Thank you very much Sir for confirming that it is NOT Dimocarpus longan Lour. I am sorry that my another upload is also not Dimocarpus longan Lour.


Immature fruits of this tree, not the same individual.
Checked those fruits today, they need more weeks to mature. I won’t forget.


These are the fruits of the very same tree that i suggested to be Dimocarpus longan Lour. (i meant Nephelium longana Cambess. = Dimocarpus longan Lour.).


Attaching images of fruit of the same tree, recorded today.

DV :: 01APR11 – 0825 :: at Coorg: A small – medium sized tree (not sure: planted OR wild).
Photos attached, includes cropped images to get nearer to fruits / flowers / leaves.
Date/Time : April 1, 2011 at 8.25am IST
Location Place : Kodagu Valley Resort, Coorg, Karnataka … 12.441294,
75.716969 on Google maps <http://goo.gl/maps/gg5t>
Altitude : 3704 ft (above mean sea level)


Can you please compare with sapindaceae members specifically Dimocarpus and its allied genera


leaves are paripinnate; flowers in terminal panicles; K5, C5, A8; and fruits small, with irregular pericarp.
This may be Dimocarpus longan of Sapindaceae.


This may be Sapindus mukorossi  Sapindaceae. Soap nut fruits are seen in two photographs.

any help here ?
In Kannada, many variants of two names are found on the internet and reference books:
1) kaana kentaali, kaanakendela, kanakentali, kanakindali, kanakindeli, kandalla, kendaale
2) malahakota, malahcota, malayakota, malehaakuta
Valid names in native script will be a great help

Dimocarpus for ID :: MK May-001 2016 : 5 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (4)
Please help me in identifying this tree. When I identified with local flora, it narrowed down to Dimocarpus longan; BIOTIK images also confirms my id; but my doubt is that these fruits are not same as the Longan fruits in the market.

Could this be any other species of Dimocarpus?

Height: 5 m
Leaflet: 20-25 cm long
Fruit: 3-4 cm long (tuberculate)


Date: 10 May 2016

Place: Periya town, Waynad Dist., Kerala

Habitat: wet forests


there is some mistake somewhere… BIG… searching by highlighting your spelling Dimocarpus longan; i get this:
what we see in bengal bazaars here is called Longon in local dialect of bengali and bihari sellers. But the biotik page link you give shows a red raspberry like fruit. need help from people who know these fruits


efi page on Dimocarpus longan 
I think these are unripe fruits of Dimocarpus longan. Pl. see details at efi thread.


that thread and another by Surajit finally showed the fruits were indeen longon as we know from the market. this fruit here though reminds me os some sort of noni or its relatives.
WHen in enlarges … pic… the surface of the fruit is kind of thick sharp edged protrusions, .. which in final ripening stage flattened out. in one continuous skin.
this current case shows fruit with segments, tops of which have a dark roundish pebble like surface, , not hairs… not unlike sitaphal or even noni.

May be … can perhaps wait till the fruits ripen and photograph the fruits and their seeds like … did.

Please identify this tree from Kannur district of Kerala.
I came across these brown colored fruits in Bangalore market during November.

These resembled Lichees, the name given by the fruit vendor was Thailand Litchi.
On searching, I found these to be Longan fruits.
Kindly validate.

I think yes.


What about the fruit size?


A little smaller than Litchis.


It looks like longan to me too. A blog featuring this fruit – http://fruitwarehouse.blogspot.in/2012/02/kelengkeng.html.

The author uses Dimocarpus malayensis might have meant Euphoria malaiensishttp://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2803794.

This tree was seen on the banks of a pond in a deep forest in Tamhini ghat near Pune, MH in Aug 2019.
I could only get a long shot of the tree and some seeds around 10m away from the tree.
… identified the seeds and the tree on FB as Dimocarpus longan.
