Farmers see larger harvests

Malaysian durians expected to be cheaper & better this season

Durian farmers in Malaysia are expecting a bountiful harvest, even with the recent spate of storms. According to farmers in Penang, prices may go down due to the large harvests. They expect some orchards to even have fruits until late October.

One durian seller shared that customers can look forward to “better quantity and quality of durians this year”. He said that the harvests in the past few years pale in comparison to this season’s. “Since it will be a good harvest this year, we can reduce the prices,” he said.

Citing the example of the popular Musang King, he estimates that the fruits will cost between RM20 (S$5.98) and RM30 (S$8.97) per kilogram. Previously, it was going for RM40 (S$11.95). In general, he estimates a five to 10% drop in prices across all fruits.
