The rare Alupag bears longan-like fruits with noticeable warts on the skin. Flesh is very tasty, like the longan, with a fairly large seed. The fruit is appreciated in its native range, but generally put aside for its better known and highly selected relatives, the lychee and longan.
An evergreen tree to 50-75ft.
Unknown, probably to about 32F.
Unstudied. Would seem to thrive in tropical environments.
By seeds, which remain viable for only a short period upon removal from the fruit. Alupag is sometimes grafted onto longan and vice versa.
Fruits are eaten fresh. Trees are cut for lumber and furniture.
Native to southeast Asia, with concentrations in the Philippines and Indonesia.
