Davao region durian farms to supply Puyat variety to Chinese markets

Durian is a widely grown fruit in the Philippines, particularly in the Davao region, the top durian-producing area in Mindanao. Director Abel James Monteagudo from the regional Department of Agriculture (DA-11) office has stated that the number of local suppliers to China could double in the coming days as many durian growers signified to get their farms accredited. This means that at least 62 accredited durian farms in Davao Region are set to supply the fruit’s premium Puyat variety to China this year.

In October last year, DA-11 said the China market for the Puyat durian variety opened after a group of Chinese representatives visited various farms in the region to evaluate good agricultural practices (GAP). Considering China's sizable market, a sizable volume of the variety could be readily in demand.
