Hi Yew Sung. I finally got a photo of the wani mango and you can check it out if we are referring to the same variety.
Thanks Angel for the photos. I think I can now ID it - yes indeed it is a variety of the bachang , the finer variety which we refer to as the Kwini or bachang kwini. The flesh has finer texture than the bachang and is less fibrous. The fruit itself is smaller than the true bachang ; the skin is smoother and the colour more green than the true bachang. There is a controversy re the Kwini , which some believe is a true species in itself, while some believe it is hybrid of the mango and the bachang. But the smell is definitely bachang.
Incidentally my two durian trees are giving me a bumper crop this year, about 60 fruits from 'Kop' variety (average size of each fruit 4kg), and 50 from the other unnamed variety (av size 2 1/2 kg). BTW the trees are about 30 tall.
interesting! thx for sharing.
Is the Kop durian similar to the Cob that we have here? This Cob is not so smelly and therefore not as tasty as some of the other varieties. whatever... a durian is a durian and for a durian lover like me, I don't really care that much. Oh how I wish I lived nearby, Yew!!!!
They look similar to the Cob we have here. And then we have the Cob white and Cob green and I can't really tell the difference. The Cob also usually comes in very large sizes.
Now that yellowish one in another picture, its equivalent here is the PUYAT variety. It is the most popular durian here because of its creaminess and sweetness. It's not my favorite though because it is quite sweet and I like those with a little bitter twist. I go for the chanee, one of the older hybrids. the chanee and the puyat also come in large sizes.
