Grafted seedlings of the Puyat variety of durian are now available at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal. It is considered as one of the favorites of durian aficionados today because of its superior eating quality. It is said that the late Teng Puyat, son of Sen. Gil J. Puyat who was very interested in agriculture, introduced it from Thailand many years ago. And that is why it is called Puyat durian.
The story we have gathered is that a government propagator from Davao had multiplied the same and entered its fruit in a government contest. It was found to be the best-tasting entry.
Now, grafted planting materials are now available at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal. They are about three feet tall and are ready for field planting. Those interested should contact Rose Banzuela at 0915-434-4216.
