Thanks to the favorable weather condition this year, the farmers revamp and apply intensive care for the crop, hence the output is much increased.

The major varieties include Long longan, Dai Thanh late ripen longan, Huong Chi and Mien Thiet longan to give big fruits with thick flesh mostly grown in the districts of Luc Nam, Luc Ngan, Tan Yen and Yen The.
