Red Durian (Tabelak, Sabah - Durio Graveolens

    12 responses

abyssquick starts with ...
Anybody growing this species? What sort of soils do these wild red durians generally like?

I have several seedlings and I'd like to get their climate just right for fast growth.

"The tree is found growing naturally on clay or sandy loam soils from sea level to 1300 metres.
Flowering occurs in about 6 years from planting out.
The red durian does not drop it's fruit when ripe and the fruit must be picked when it has attained full colour/color."
- from Glenn Tankard's 1987 book 'Tropical Fruit..."
and the later edition renamed as "Exotic Tree Fruit for the Australian Home Garden" by the same author.

Hi Fruit lovers! I am desperately looking for a source of seeds for the Kubal and other varieties or species of Willughbeia, a climbing vine of north Borneo that has very good fruits. Can you help? Write me at jesseblenn@gmail.com.

Jesse there are a number of Willughbeia species with good fruit in SE Asia.You can buy the seeds of Thai Isaan ones on line.D.graveolans is only held by a couple of people in Australia and D164 sometimes gets called red durian.A source in Borneo might be your only shot.I have heard that graveolans cross zibethinus in Borneo are of excellent quality.

Hi Mike,

So do you know where to get any seeds of Willughbeia? I ate it in Borneo but my few plants gradually died from fungus (will use fungicide next time, soaking the entire planting bag, worked great for Baccaureas). I actually was absolutely thrilled to buy seeds of three or four species maybe three years ago from rarepalmseeds.com. I had the treasures in my hand, but they were wrapped in a thin layer of newsprint and then wound in plastic shrink wrap, and ALL dead. Such a pity. I have asked rarepalms to sell me contact info for their discontinued source for Borneo seeds, but no answer. SOMEBODY sells them! jesseblenn@gmail.com

Jesse look on simply-thai.com seeds and look at luuk yang pa,I presume that is a Willughbeia.There are seeds of great fruits not in Australia or probably the US.David Chandlee in NQ had a borneo collection seed business but I don't knowif Yasi wrecked it.He'd probablt have red durian seeds.Esarn has a climate more like costa rica than Borneo.Jesse did you ever try a good illama,soncoya,red mombin or spanish lime in costa rica?Australian don't have any good ones at all and you could be a source of seeds for us.

Go to Borneo and buy fruits seems to be the only way to get seeds . PELNI from Manado might be affordable way for travel from Philipines . Manado to Davao route may still be working .

Just wondering if there are decent places to find other durian species in Sabah? i was there before in Feb and didnt find any, even commercial ones. I am there next month (March) to try and find more, any tips. I collect and grow Durio at my farm but so far only manage to have Thai and Filipino varieties growing.

This place Malacca/Melaka about 2 hours from KL Malaysia has 29 varieties, may be the place to visit. I am not an expert so I can not tell. Not sure if one of these are red durian.
