KUALA LUMPUR – Supply appears to have exceeded demand for durian. As the harvesting season goes past its peak, sellers are marking down prices till it’s just RM1 ($0.34) per unit to encourage buyers to snap them up before the fruits go bad.
A photo of the price slash was making rounds on Facebook on Friday (July 20), showing a durian stall in Sungai Kob near Kulim, Kedah. Larger and fresher durians were going at between RM3 and RM8.
In Chai Leng Park, Butterworth, a durian seller was spotted selling Musang King at RM28 per kg.
