The durian boom has been one of the stories of the pandemic. On every street corner across the nation, you're bound to see a durian vendor or a farm truck selling Malaysia's King of Fruits.

For a lockdown treat, the Durian Raja Kunyit, also known as the Musang King, has been a constant favourite. Then you can add the highly-prized Duri Hitam and the lipstick tease of Durian Dalit, Sabah’s red-fleshed fruit, to the list.
