After a hearty lunch at Hock Heng Huat, Tg Sepat, we headed towards Banting direction and made a right turn from the main road into Soon Beng Longan orchard at Gadong Estate, Tg Sepat. The owner began planting longan trees many years back and it is now one of the most successful longan orchards in Malaysia. Actually longan doesn’t really grow very well in our climate and soil but this orchard managed to produce good quality longan. I have been visiting this orchard for many years. The medium size longan is very sweet. I would normally buy the fresh longan (RM5) and sometime dried ones as well. Apart from longan, there are also other produce for sales such as fresh vegetables, dragon fruit, coconut, bananas, sweet potatoes, guava, rose apple, melons and many more. There are loads of buses and cars going into this plantation during weekend and school holidays. This is more of an educational trip for my children. Town children seldom get to see how fruits and vegetables are grown. We sat down there, enjoyed some pandan coconut drinks and local fruits.
