Business Description

(The pictures uploaded here are actual pictures taken from the farm in Jan 2018)

I have a mature durian farm in Johor for sale. I am a Singaporean, selling as the owner of the farm (not agents), having owned the farm for more than 20 years.

I am selling at a SGD 3M ie Price Earnings ratio of 7 (BEFORE China opens up to whole husk durian imports from Malaysia).

With a projected annual gross revenue of SGD 420,000, it will take 7 years to recoup $3M; after China opens up for whole-husk durian imports (projected 1Q19), you are expected to recoup your buying price in a much shorter time frame.

Profit and Loss Statement Assumptions:

  1. Owner farms and sells the durians directly to Singapore end consumers

  2. 300 mature trees bearing 100 fruits each year (40% Musang King)

  3. Musang King sells at S$20 per kg, the rest of the durian types at S$10 per kg

  4. Gross revenue of SGD 420,000 per year

There are no audited financial statements as the farm has been operated as a one-man show in the past and currently being leased out.

Types of Durians Planted:

40% Musang King (猫山王) planted and the rest are all branded durians like D24, 101, XO. 

All are mature trees bearing fruits already. The durian trees are more than 10 years old ie stage of producing very good fruits. About 300 durian trees are planted.

Land Size & Condition:

5.2 hectares of land (or 12.8acres). Freehold. Title deed will be shown upon meet-up

Gentle sloping land (good for durians so that there is no excessive water retention in soil)


The farm is located in the vicinity of Kampung Machap, 86200 Simpang Renggam, Johor, Malaysia, about 1hr drive after Woodlands checkpoint. The farm is just beside the North-South Highway Machap exit (see map in picture uploaded).

Current Condition:

The owner is not farming and selling the durians himself currently. 

The farm is now leased out to an experienced Malaysian durian farmer for past few years, thus explaining why the farm is so tidy and well arranged with nets etc as seen from the pictures uploaded. Though the lease ends Sep2019, under our lease agreement, the lessee can be asked to vacate the land immediately once new owner takes over or the new owner can renegotiate a new lease price and agreement upon take-over.

Asking Price:

We are looking at a price of around SGD 3Million ie S$5.30psf at a PE of 7.

Price is higher compared to areas like Pahang, as Iskandar zone is less than an hour's drive away from our farm.

The price also takes into account that China will be opened for whole-husk durian imports from Malaysia, projected to take place in 1Q19. This will lower the PE significantly

*Latest update: an uncultivated piece of land, about 5acres, 2km away from us, has been sold for S$3psf in 2018.

Other Information
A 2-storey wooden working shed is built in with cooking, storing and stay-in facilities (see picture uploaded). Multiple ponds are also available in the plantation from a previous ornamental fish business. Selling price includes all assets on the land.
Expansion Potential:
Durians are now very hot in many countries, especially China, which is a super huge market. Revenue will be much higher if the durians are sold in China.
