PETALING JAYA: Malaysians are cheering on two Australian farmers who want to bring durian to the world stage with the hope that this can increase the supply of the King of Fruits.

While the king of fruits is typically grown in Asia, Blair Limbert and his business partner Riley Hickson founded The Ripe Time, an Australian farm that grows 50 species of tropical fruit such as durian, cempedak, jackfruit and mangosteen.
