Newleaf's share-farming programme lets you own a Musang King tree and share a Musang King farm
Owning a durian tree is probably not at the top of your list, but with the durian craze that is currently sweeping though the world, you might probably want to rethink that.
The King of Fruits' popularity is at an all-time high. Among those who have fallen in love with the King of Fruits' one-of-a-kind taste are high-profile Hollywood A-listers, famous footballers, esteemed master chefs, revered food critics and even world leaders.
But no one is more in love with durians now than China. According to United Nations data, the past decade has seen the value of fresh imported durians in China increase by an average of 26 percent a year, reaching USD 1.1 billion in 2016. Amidst China's growing appetite for durians, the Musang King is especially popular, which caused its value to skyrocket to USD 17 per kilogram at one point. Available only in major cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, Musang King is not just unique in taste but unique to Malaysia as well - it can only be grown in Malaysia, making it a true Malaysian treasure.
