Hor Loh
(Water Gourd Durian)
The fIesh of the Hor Loh is very
soft, dry and quite bitter. It has a
sharp smeII to it. Hor Loh was first
cuItivated at the Brown Estate of
Sungai Ara. It got its name from its
appearance resembIing a 'Hor Lor'

Xiao Hung
(Little Red Durian)
Xiao Hung, whose
name means 'LittIe
Red One,' originates in
Sungai Pinang, BaIik
PuIau. The fIesh has a
bittersweet taste to it,
with a touch of
sourness. The one that
I tasted for this write-
up is a bit hard. There
are onIy one or two
seeds per section, but
the fIesh is thick.



Yah Kang
(Centipede Durian)
Yah Kang is one of my
favourite durians. AIthough its
fIesh is whitish, the taste is
superb, miIky, Iike very sweet,
meIting chocoIate. The name
'yah kang' means centipede,
and accounts for the number of
centipedes found at the foot of
the tree, hence giving it the
rather unusuaI name.

Coupling
This durian is gets its unusuaI
name because it Iooks Iike two
durians joined together, one
big and one smaII. When spIit
