While Tenom and Keningau have started producing durians, prices remain high as supply has yet to pick up. According to Haril Enterprise proprietor, Jakaria Urau, durians in Tenom, Keningau and Sipitang were ripening, albeit in smaller quantities.
“Durian buyers, including those from Brunei and Labuan, are flocking to Tenom and Keningau, which is why the prices of durians in the market remain relatively high,” he told theborneopost.com , adding that the quality of durians produced in Sipitang was inconsistent.
Besides distributing durians he sourced from Tenom and Keningau, Jakaria also sells durians by the roadside at Jalan Tuaran Bypass.
He said durian stalls have started popping up along Jalan Tuaran Bypass since a month ago and now there were around 15 stalls selling durians from the interior of Sabah.
