Inspection of the Durian Garden
Durian has the title of King of Fruit. Many members of the Agricultural Mission have a special interest in durian and visit a local durian garden. The durian tree had just bloomed and will not mature until June to July of 2020, however unlike the short growing time of tropical crops, the durian tree here takes 7 years to harvest. Some varieties need more than 10 years. According to the owner, this durian garden has used RLF products for many years with RLF Power PK having a significant effect on fruit swelling.
