My dad loves gardening and he grows plants which he knows not the name of or that they are not accurate. Nevertheless, I was much excited by the latest find in the garden, thanks to his green fingers!
I now realise this Fiji or African longan is not the Spanish lime or Guinep or Mamoncillo fruit as I previously thought. Other names include Island Lychee, Tava (Samoa) and Kasai (Malaysia).
