While scanning thru some old photos, I came across a shot taken in Kudasang, Sabah.
It was our old trip to the wilds near Gunung Kinabalu, the highest mountain of Malaysia. This was around 1992. Met some natives and bought these red durians. They do look unique but do not taste good. The red flesh is as hard as the Jackfruit (Nangka).

For novelty sake, why can't some enterprising biologist cross and clone these with the West Malaysian champion a.k.a Musang King to create an awesome hybrid?
With prices of durians shooting up always, a new one would make a killing!
