Try this: Lee skilfully opening a durian at his Changkat Kinding orchard.

IPOH: While Penang is renowned for the thorny fruit, other states such as Perak are fast gaining popularity among durian lovers. 

One man who sells durians part-time is 24-year-old Steven Lee, who has a1.6ha orchard in Changkat Kinding.  

“My mother normally collects the fruits early in the morning before selling them in Jalan Durian, Chemor,” said Lee, as he deftly used a brush to clean the fruit of dirt and leaves. 

Lee, whose orchard has D24, kampung and Thai variants, added that the secret to choosing a good durian was to give it a shake. 

“If you can feel the fruit inside move and it emits a nice fragrance, the fruit is good,” he explained. 

Lee said the D24 durians were sold at RM4 per kilo while kampung durians were priced as low as 50 sen per piece.
