Desaru Fruit Farm loses RM600,000 due to flood

The well-known Desaru Fruit Farm in Malaysia has suffered losses of about RM600,000 (€132,000) after 90 per cent of its orchard was flooded. Desaru Fruit Farm director Alice Tong Ah Chin said water guava, banana, bidara (jujube) and pomelo were among the fruits that were badly damaged when the orchard was flooded on Tuesday.

“Damage is done not only to the trees and fruits, but also to our other infrastructure, including the agricultural gallery which was also swamped. We have more than 100 species of plants and fruit trees. Although we are often hit by flooding, this is one of the worst,” she said.

She hopes that the relevant authorities would consider rendering assistance as the Desaru Fruit Farm has been a famous agro-tourism destinations since 2003, receiving about 500,000 visitors every year.
