A durian plantation in Terengganu has its fruits fully booked even before they have ripened. Owner Ismail Tawang said the his Cikgu Wei durians see a great demand every year. “Many durian fans have booked them and the durians are expected to start falling in September. The price of the CW durian is still RM40 (S$13) per kilo as it was two years ago, even though the demand has increased due to the guaranteed quality,” he said at his plantation in Kampung Lingai, Tepoh.
“The CW durian is not yellow like the Musang King or Udang Merah varieties but tastes better,” he also told asiaone.com. Ismail said he planted many other durian varieties, but the CW durian has the highest demand.
