Davao City is the second most populous and the third most significant metropolitan area in the Philippines. It serves as the trade, commerce, and industry hub in Mindanao and the regional center for Davao Region.

One of Davao's economic allies is agriculture despite the fact it is a city (with a total land area of 2,444 square kilometers). As a matter of fact, agriculture accounted for almost half (roughly 48 percent) of the city's economy.

Davao has been considered as the "durian capital of the Philippines" as the controversial fruit (which "smells like hell but tastes like heaven," according to one scribe) is grown extensively.

But there's more to Davao than just durian. In fact, Davao is a leading producer of mango, pomelo, banana, mangosteen, papaya, and pineapple.

Other fruits abound throughout the year, too, like Lanzones, santol, tamarind, watermelon, oranges, guava, and passion fruit.

This is the reason why Davao City was Hailed as the Fruit Basket of the Philippines.
