King of fruit, Malaysian Musang King durian introduced to Sanya
If you love durian, you’ll know that Musang King durian is one of the most sought-after varieties of this thorny fruit. Since Sanya has similar weather conditions to Malaysia, it is considered very suitable for the wide cultivation of Musang King durians in the region.
On May 18th, 2019, Sanya Nanlu Industry Co., Ltd., introduced 20 tree seedings of Malaysian Musang King durian, and established 1.3 hectares of Musang King durian growing land at Nanlu Farm.
Malaysia is well known for its quality durians, which come in more than a hundred varieties. Musang King is one of the most sought-after Malaysian durian varieties due to its appealing texture and flavor. The fruit’s flesh has a thick and creamy texture, and features a sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness. Due to the fruit’s high demand and limited supply, the price of Musang King in China is significantly higher than elsewhere.
Sanya Nanlu Industry Co., Ltd. expects that large-scale production of Musang King durian in the tropical city will help to meet increasing demand for the varietal in the Chinese market. In the future, the company will expand its planting area, and actively guide local farmers in increasing their incomes by growing Musang King durians for the Chinese market or even for international markets.
