WHat is Kadayawan?

Kadayawan is a yearly festival in Davao City. They call it the festival of all festivals in the entire Philippines. It is a celebration of the bountiful harvest from fruits to flowers. For this year, 2007, there were a lot more Mangosteen and Durian on the streets selling at a very low price. Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) is often heralded as the “Queen of Fruits” is a tropical evergreen tree. Durian is the “King of Fruits”, duri is thorn with Malay suffix that is –an (for building a noun in Malay) meaning “thorny fruit”
