Sarawak Mata Kuching or Wild Longans

Now is the season the for mata kuching or cat's eyes - a local wild variety of longan that are now being cultivated.. They are super-sweet and have more flavour than the normal longan.

The tree of the mata kuching is a big tree ..... this tree here is already fruiting.

Most are of a size between the 10 sen and 20 sen coins.
