  1. Hi Mr Anem. I come across your post here regarding durian clones in Malaysia. This site is most informative and reliable for this subject - durians. I hope you can include good photos of each clone and also provide detail and characteristic for each type. Is it correct to say that D197 Rajah Kunyit (Mao Shan Wang or Butter durian) has a prominent"Star Fish" logo at the tip of the durian? By the way, Where can I view the comprehensive list of durian clones registered in Malaysia.
    Lastly, may use some of your durian photos to link Durianon webpage to your site? Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Durianon .
