Durian in Flower

One of our oldest Durian is flowering. This tree survived Hurricane Iniki and grew back from the roots. Its had a few fruit over the years but unfortunately its low stature makes it vulnerable to the depredations of wild pigs, so none have fully matured. Its been shade out that last few years so I've cleared out around it to let in more sun giving it a good growth flush. I hope this year some fruit will be able to mature.
