The buches of durians I showed on the other thread is Isu which can be D. oblongus or D. oxylenus. Very confusing. See my notes below. Isu (Durio isu or Durio oblongus) - Native to Borneo. Medium sized (5-6") fruit, with a yellowish-green skin, many long sharp spines, and yellow flesh. Flesh is thicker and firmer than most durians. Minimal smell. Pollinated by spiderhunters (Nectariniidae) not bats. Kerantongan (Durio oxleyanus) – Also called Keratogan. Malays calls it Durian Burung. Iban calls it Rian Isu. Native to Borneo. Small fruited, wild durian of Borneo. Grows to 40m tall. Immature fruits are bright green with a hairy appearance of 4cm long curved spines ripens to yellow color with strong odor. The globular fruits are extremely homogenous. Occasionally cultivated in Borneo. The aril is usually yellow, smooth and sweet with a strong distinct smoky fragrance. Large tree, often larger than the common durian. Unlike most other durians which have five main lobes, the Kerantongan has only four. Easily opened. Some thin pulped. Propagation by seed. Kerry Mc brought some seeds back a few years ago.
