China: New durian varieties enter market

Durian is known as the king of fruit in Southeast Asia. Musang King, with its superior flavor, small production volume, and high price is indeed the king among kings.

Durian Sukang and Durian Dalit

Many fans travel to Malaysia to find exotic durians, but now it is not the Musang King. This time they are looking for something even more expensive and rare - the Durian Sukang and Durian Dalit.

The taste of these two durian varieties is completely different from normal durian. The fruit flesh is flat and smooth like cheese. It is fragrant and sweet, delicious, and creates a craving in the people who have had the pleasure to taste it.

The smell of these durian varieties is stronger than normal durian and has a hint of fermentation to it. The smell of the red flesh is even stronger, twice as strong as the orange flesh, which is why the red flesh durian sells better. Some people say they get drunk on red flesh durian.

These two durian varieties are not produced on a large scale, so their market supply volume is extremely small. Many people have not even heard of them, let alone seen them or tasted them.
