    According to one source,Miri stops growing durian in early Feb.
    what is the name of these species of durian?

    @Ken Tucky
    I am not too sure about the durian season in Miri. But early of the year January and February when I am back there durians.

    For the name of the species you can check out this website:
    www.durianpalace.com/rare_durians_of_borneo.htm

    I got a latest photo of one of the species this time around when I was back in Miri recently.

    Durio oxleyanus (2)
