    Okay, so I was just given a large box of longan. Since we are entering into summer here in Melbourne, would it hurt to give them some sweet and refreshing longans? Of course I would give it to them without the skin. If they can eat longan, is there a limited about they should eat it? Thank you [​IMG]

    I would suppose it would be a bit like giving grapes...you could probably give a handful of small peices to see how they react...I wouldn't think it would cause any problems...I mean, I love lychee, Im sure my girls would too lol! [​IMG]

    longan is so similar that I can't imagine that it would be any different giving that to them [​IMG]
