You might have seen this one-of-a-kind Christmas tree circulating around on social media by now.

Or even from one of your aunties and uncles on WhatsApp.

Unlike most WhatsApp messages though, this isn't fake news.

Durian Christmas tree

This Christmas tree was created by a Christian community in the city of Kuching, Sarawak.

This Christmas tree is about two metres (seven feet) and uses around 200 durians as part of the decoration at Good News Fellowship.

Adding more flavours to this festive season indeed.


The durian Christmas tree won praises and definitely impressed many people who shared images of this viral tree.

"Very curious how you guys stacked up the durians, stacked so high somemore"


The best part about the tree though?

You get to eat it afterwards.

Here's the post by the people behind the tree:

#GoodNewsFellowship's #Christmas Street Dinner was a night to remember! We stepped out in faith & prayed for the rain to stay away for one night & it did!


Thanks to everyone who contributed food, muscle, time, creativity, & money! It really left a positive impression on everyone who attended! (Even those who did not attend were impressed with our durian tree!)


If you're looking for a church or a place to explore your curiosities about why we're here on Earth, send me a PM. All are welcome!

Merry Christmas!
