Durian, (Durio zibethinus Murr.) is a popular fruit that commercially planted in Malaysia. The name durian comes from the Malay word ’duri’ (thorn) together with the suffix-an (for building a noun in Malay).
It used to be grown by marcotting, or more commonly, by grafting, including bud, veneer, wedge, whip or U-grafting onto seedlings of randomly selected rootstocks.
With good agriculture practices, the durian tree should start to produce fruits at 5 years of age.
