Malaysia to export DURIANS to China.

Malaysia will start exporting durians to mainland China from July 1st, 2011.
The breakthrough for Malaysia's durian growers comes after Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao visited Kuala Lumpur last month and formally agreed to allow the entry of Malaysian durians, which some fans insist are deliciously creamier and more aromatic than Thai-grown ones.
The tropical fruit — distinctive for its thorn-covered green outer rind and pungent smell — is grown in numerous Southeast Asian countries such as the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Brunei and Vietnam.

Malaysian Agriculture Minister Noh Omar said durians will be sent to China during the peak harvesting months between July and September.
Ahmad Ishak, the head of Malaysia's Federal Agriculture Marketing Authority, said that the country produces about 330,000 tons (300,000 metric tons) of durians a year, mainly for domestic consumption.
"We will export the frozen flesh of two types of durians, comprising fruits with seeds and those without seeds," quoted Ahmad.

Malaysia can only supply frozen exports because its species of durians generally must be allowed to ripen on the tree. Fermentation can change the fruit's flavor within hours and cause durians to spoil in less than a week.

Nevertheless, Malaysian officials have urged farmers in recent weeks to boost production, promising that demand from China will help prevent any potential glut in the domestic market.
Chinese officials have reportedly visited Malaysian durian plantations in recent months for food safety inspections. Malaysia's government said it sent a gift of 200 frozen durians to Wen after the Chinese premier indicated his country was ready to import the fruits.
