Origin Of Durian Musang King @ Raja Kunyit

Although most of Klang Valley supplies of Musang King comes from Raub – Pahang, it is not the “original” birth place of the famous Durian Musang King. It all started in the early 90s at Tanah Merah, Kelantan. A fruit seller from Pahang was looking all over Malaysia for the best durian and somehow he was introduced to a type of durian which locals in Kelantan referred to as Raja Kunyit.

Raja Kunyit tasted so nice that he claims it fulfill all 10 Required Criterias to be the ‘King of the King of Fruits’. This man that see through the destiny of Raja Kunyit quickly brings back to his plantation at Karak, Pahang. While on his way back to Karak, he pass by Gua Musang. (A must pass by town from Tanah Merah to Karak) Something brilliant struck him, he thought that since Gua Musang is more commonly known compared to Tanah Merah, he “pinjam” the Musang and added the word “King” as a substitution for the original Raja Kunyit and hence born “Durian Musang King”.
