Farmers claim that Pak Chong-Khao Yai durians have a winning combination of sweetness, dry, soft flesh and no strong smell

The Pak Chong-Khao Yai durian, a variety of the famous Mon Thong strain, is the star of a festival at Pak Chong district’s Chokchai Farm.

Nakhon Ratchasima deputy governor Chusak Chunkoh presided over the opening of the first Pak Chong-Khao Yai GI Durian Festival and presented GI certificates to 39 durian farms in the Pak Chong and Khao Yai areas.
