Durian season is here, but we have a problem - supply is somewhat thin, and not just because of the foul weather up north.
The Chinese, it seems, have developed a taste for durians too.
Which mean that if you do manage to get your favourite durian, it’s likely to be pricier.
Said durian supplier Goh Meng Chiang: “Now, when I bid for a basket of durians, I find out that the Chinese have already put a bid on it. I end up having to pay about 30 per cent more for a basket of durians.”
